Can you believe it’s been 30 years since “The Oprah Show” first made its TV debut and changed the landscape of talk shows forever?
This morning Oprah reminded us about the iconic anniversary, on Instagram, when she posted a photo with the caption, “30 years ago today. The premiere of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Amazing Grace. Glory days. Shoutout to Harponians everywhere!” In all her accomplishments, it all started with this talk show that revolutionized the genre and secured Oprah Winfrey as a legend.

30. If there’s ever been a standout creative and executive that I’ve patterned my trajectory after, it’s @iamdiddy. There’s absolutely nothing about the maestro, mogul and, sometimes, magician that’s not inspiring. Watching him lead his label through the soundtrack of my life last night was a moment one several levels. I experienced it at the right time in the right place. It fully birthed the new beast I’ve been incubating. It was a hell of a show. Thanks @iamdiddy. 🙌🏾
