They want to witness a piece of history when Oprah Winfrey announces that she is leaving her daytime teleivision show in Septemeber 2011. They want to hear about the plans straight from the diva's mouth.
“We’re all giddy, that’s why we’re here early,” said Carole Stallworthy, who came all the way from Toronto to hear the news. “I like to think of this as a stepping stone to her next success. I think that whatever she does next will turn to gold.”
Audience member Rachel Lavipour of Las Vegas says she thinks Winfrey's announcement is "a huge moment in our pop culture history."
Winfrey's show airs in 145 countries worldwide and is watched by an estimated 42 million viewers a week in the U.S. alone.
