Oprah Winfrey will board CBS’ long-running news program 60 Minutes as a special contributor.

The announcement was made this morning.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

“There is only one Oprah Winfrey,” 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager said Tuesday morning in making the announcement. “She has achieved excellence in everything she has touched. Her body of work is extraordinary, including thousands of interviews with people from all walks of life. She is a remarkable and talented woman with a level of integrity that sets her apart and makes her a perfect fit for 60 Minutes. I am thrilled that she will be bringing her unique and powerful voice to our broadcast.”

Winfrey added, “I’ve been a big admirer of 60 Minutes since my days as a young reporter. I’m so excited and proud to join forces with this historic news program, which for me represents the bastion of journalistic storytelling. At a time when people are so divided, my intention is to bring relevant insight and perspective, to look at what separates us, and help facilitate real conversations between people from different backgrounds.”

Get it Fairy God Mommy!

Congratulations on the new gig, Oprah!
