Strombo, Oprah. Oprah, Strombo.
The CBC's George Stroumboulopoulos will moderate a conversation with Oprah Winfrey during her stop in Hamilton on April 13 at Copps Coliseum.
The show starts at 6:00 pm followed by a Q & A session with Stroumboulopoulos. The star of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight will also moderate Oprah's tour stops in Ottawa, Saskatoon and Montreal.
Stroumboulopoulos says he's excited to be a part of the Oprah's Canadian tour. "I love being in the company of someone so thoughtful, giving and focused on helping others find their place" he said. "I am really looking forward to these upcoming events."
Winfrey became a household name with her syndicated, namesake talk show, which ran more than 25 years. She ended the landmark program in 2011 to focus her efforts on her specialty channel OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. In 2012, she brought her new network's touring Lifeclass series — in which she shares life lessons with fans — to Canada for the first time with a stop in Toronto.
