Oprah turns 58 on January 29th and she's got a special guest to share it with.
That guest…Ted Turner!!!
Well, it won't be romantic however.
Oprah will actually be working and interviewing the media kingpin for Oprah's Master Class.
The host will interview Turner on his accomplishments and major achievements. The CNN founder will join Goldie Hawn and Morgan Freeman in the pantheon of guests for the show.
Turner explains how he started CNN on the show:
I worked ’til 6 or 7 o'clock at night. By the time I got (home), the news was, the early news was over and I had to go to bed at 10 because I got up really early to go to work … I missed the 11 o'clock news. … So I, I never saw television news. And I knew there were a lot of people like me. I knew that if it was on all the time, like - and all news radio had already proven successful. So I figured, you know, if it worked on radio it would work on TV too.
That's not a fun way to celebrate your b-day. But she's working hard!
