But their echoes are endless.”

- Oprah Winfrey
* Interesting Fact – Oprah Winfrey was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a teenage single mother and later raised in an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood. After she experienced considerable hardship during her childhood, she was sent to live with the man she calls her father, a barber in Tennessee. Winfrey landed a job in radio while still in high school and began co-anchoring the local evening news at the young age of 19. Her emotional ad-lib delivery eventually got her transferred to the daytime-talk-show arena, and after boosting a third-rated local Chicago talk show to first place, she launched her own production company and became internationally syndicated. The rest is history.
