"Tomorrow, Oprah will announce live on The Oprah Winfrey Show that she has decided to end what is arguably one of the most popular, influential and enduring programs in television history," wrote Tim Bennett. " The sun will set on the Oprah show as its 25th season draws to a close on September 9, 2011."

"Before she speaks to her loyal viewers, we wanted to share her decision first with you - our valued partners for more than two decades... Oprah's personal comments about this on tomorrow's live show will mark a historic television moment that we will all be talking about for years to come."
