Oprah Winfrey is joining 60 Minutes as a special contributor, CBS news tweeted out.
“I’ve been a big admirer of 60 Minutes since my days as a young reporter,” said Winfrey. “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.”
