Good news! Oprah misses us as much as we miss her daily talk show.
The OWN creator and media mogul revealed that she does miss having a daily connection to audiences. So to heal her pain, Oprah said she’s planning a speaking tour.
“That’s what I see in the future, in terms of my connection to an audience,” Oprah told New York Magazine. “I don’t think I will ever be sitting in front of an audience again doing a show like Oprah. The truth is, I really don’t miss trying [to do a show] every day.”
Oprah says what took up most of her time was the business aspect of having your own show. “I don’t miss that,” she said. “But I do miss the day-to-day connection. When you tell 10 million people about something about which you are enthusiastic, and they trust you, you can get a million people to respond. I miss that immediate direct access. So I now do it through Twitter.”
