Nowadays, when you open TV sets around the world, you will see a “talk show” program in all likelihood. However, in the 1970s and 1980s, the talk show was still a non-mainstream new thing. In the 1970s, a TV presenter named Fair Dunah founded a television show in Dayton, Ohio, in the middle of the United States, and invited the audience to his studio to talk about various taboo topics. Go down the stage and hand the microphone to the audience to let the audience express their opinions. Because it is not the traditional news, and many of them are the vulgar and taboo content that can’t be on the table. This program is labeled as “the tabloid talk show”, also called the “day talk show”, which is different from the news content of the day. Various evening talk shows on topics.
During the day, the “talk show” was always non-mainstream at the beginning of its birth. It was a program for housewives to fill in time. Until 1986, a 32-year-old black woman named Oprah appeared on the national television network.
”Opula Show”, a daytime “talk show” program, has gradually attracted the attention of TV viewers across the country, and the ratings of the show have skyrocketed. By 1990, Oprah Show had become a national hot spot, forming a peculiar cultural phenomenon.
Oprah Winfrey was born in a poor black family in Mississippi. When her mother was 16 years old, she was unmarried and gave birth to Oprah. Because her mother was a waitress in a foreign state, Oprah lived with her grandmother until she was 6 years old. The grandmother taught her to read and recite the Bible to take her to church. Oprah has an outstanding memory. The woody BLOG can recite a large part of the Bible and is called an evangelist at a young age.
During the boyhood, Oprah twirled between the biological mother and the biological father, and was sent to the fence to be bullied by the opposite sex elders and cousins. When she was 9 years old, she was raped. When she was 14 years old, she gave birth to a child. The young child died in the hospital. All this left a huge shadow on her future life path.
The hardships of life did not bury Oprah’s intelligence, she was always a good student of the school. When she graduated from high school, she received a scholarship to enter the traditional black university to study speech and language arts.
While still in high school, Dian Pula worked as a part-time broadcaster on the radio station. At the age of 19, she began to host local evening TV news. Later, she was employed by Baltimore, a local television station, to host the evening news. But Oprah’s performance made the TV station manager unsatisfied: when she reported the news, she accidentally said that she would go out and laughed at the camera: If it was a sad news, she would cry in front of the camera. The TV station had to transfer her to host the “talk show” program during the day. Unexpectedly, this original transfer of “dereliction of duty” has made Oprah’s life brilliant.
After Oprah took over the “talk show” show during the day, the show quickly became the most popular “talk show” show in the area. In 1986, Oprah founded the Oprah Show, named after him, and sold it to the national television network.
Unlike the “Talk Show”, the originator of Oprah, Oprah’s conversation is not aggressive, but a friendly, friend-like chat. But her chat is not perfunctory, irrelevant, but there is concern and in-depth. The sad story of the guest will fill her eyes with tears. She will be honest with the guests and the audience to exchange feelings deep inside. Her way of talking is therefore defined as “confessional.” Wood wood BLOG
In her own program, she revealed to her audience the experience of being raped and abused when she was a teenager, and through the exchanges to bridge the wounds of each other. Her early programs involved a lot of “alternative people” in society at the time: homosexuality, bisexuality, AIDS patients and so on. Her program played an important role in social inclusion and acceptance of vulnerable groups.
When homosexuality began to be discussed in large numbers in the mainstream media, in a program, an audience stood up and said that they were tired of talking about homosexuality on television. “Do you know what I am tired of? I am tired of heterosexual men bullying and raped girls!” Oprah’s answer won a round of applause from the audience.

Everyone loves Oprah
There are countless celebrities who have been to Oprah Studios, but Oprah’s skills are not limited to ten.

In an era when public opinion is not trusted by the people, Oprah is always able to lead the people in a small environment where celebrities are exposed to “exposure” and “exposure.” The news media once reported that former US President Bill Clinton may become the host of the program. Someone made an interesting metaphor that he might become “a future Oprah”.
