When Oprah Winfrey returns to Canada this spring, CBC-TV host George Stroumboulopoulos will also be back at her side to chat with the talk show maven.

The host of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight first teamed up with Winfrey during her recent Western Canada visits in January. He conducted onstage interviews with her in EdmontonCalgary and Vancouver.

On Wednesday, Stroumboulopoulos confirmed that he will again appear with Winfrey for the next few stops on her Canadian tour. He will conduct Q&A sessions with her in Ottawa (April 10), Montreal (April 11), Hamilton, Ont. (April 13) and Saskatoon (April 14).

"I love being in the company of someone so thoughtful, giving and focused on helping others find their place," Stroumboulopoulos said.

"Oprah is a lot of fun to be around and 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.
