Oprah Winfrey is looking for ways to tackle the political divide in the United States, and she's ready to try a new one: joining "60 Minutes."
The Queen of All Media is taking on a role as a special contributor to the news program, Deadline reports. Her first appearance will come during an episode this fall, and we can expect to see her interacting with a variety of Americans.
"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," Wifrey said in a statement.
Naturally, the show is thrilled to have her. Executive Producer Jeff Fager highlighted her years of success as a talk show host and general media maven.
"Her body of work is extraordinary, including thousands of interviews with people from all walks of life," he said. "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.'"
She may have a tough job ahead of her, but we have faith in the power of Oprah.
