Oprah Winfrey Toasts Fellow Daytime Talk Show Hosts

As part of her farewell season, Oprah Winfrey sits down with those who came before — and beside — her on the talk show circuit.

Among the guests on tomorrow’s “Oprah Winfrey Show”: Phil Donahue, who went on to host a short-lived show on MSNBC in the timeslot now occupied by Keith Olbermann. And Geraldo Rivera who, after leaving daytime, went on to host a primetime show on CNBC and is now a mainstay of the Fox News weekend primetime. Sally Jessy Raphael, Ricki Lake and Montel Williams also joined Winfrey to talk about their experiences in daytime television. Jerry Springer and Jenny Jones did not.
