Stay with WCTV to see how folks in our area are celebrating the final Oprah episode. Also, be sure to watch the show on WCTV at 4pm.

CHICAGO (AP) --

Oprah Winfrey walked on stage for her talk show
finale to a standing ovation from her studio audience.

Winfrey thanked her viewers for watching for 25 years, and
encouraged them to be "more of yourself."

In the show aired Wednesday, she told them that sometimes she
was a teacher, but more often her viewers taught her.

Winfrey taped the last episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" on
Tuesday in Chicago.

It was a simply produced series finale filled with a sense of
gratitude -- an entirely different feel to the star-studded
double-episode farewell shows that aired Monday and Tuesday.

Winfrey announced in November 2009 that she would end her
popular talk show. She has since launched her own cable network,
based in Los Angeles.

    Stop grouching. Seems like to me you watch to much tv. If your tired of hearing it, then turn off the tv. The lady has done a lot and she deserves all of the recognition. p.s. Nobody messes with Oprah

    Man, I wish they would quit talking about this. For months and months they have been droning on about Oprah having her final show. Now after this final show, she'll have a special commemorative final show, and a special comeback show, and on and on and on.....
