Oprah Winfrey Speaks to National University Students

On an unusual rainy day in San Diego, talk show host, actor, producer, and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey gave an address to the National University Community.  Students were front and center for the address given at the Sanford Center on April 7th. The talk was streamed live to our California campuses and to the web.  Born into poverty to a single mother in rural Mississippi, Winfrey later moved to Milwaukee and then to Tennessee.  There she was offered an on-air job at a local radio station.  Winfrey later moved to Baltimore to co-anchor the news and start a talk show which was soon renamed The Oprah Winfrey Show and broadcast nationally. Her show remains to this day the highest-rated talk show in American television history.  Ms. Winfrey remains a powerhouse in the media, maintaining an intimate talk show format and an active website and magazine.  Oprah took questions from students after an hour talk on living your best life for the greater.
