Oprah Winfrey was bound to have an encouraging life story considering her difficult path. Born in Mississippi and raised by her single mother, Oprah had a rough childhood that included abuse and poverty. However, this didn’t stop Oprah from graduating magna cum laude from Tennessee State University before moving on to broadcast news at Nashville’s WTVF-TV and other news stations.
After becoming a talk show host for King World Productions and WLS-TV (Chicago) and co-hosting Good Morning America—two shows that helped put her name on the map—Oprah created one of the most successful talk shows ever: The Oprah Winfrey Show.
