Will she or won’t she? That’s the question on the minds of gossip columnists and talkshow fans everywhere as rumors continue to circulate that Oprah Winfrey is considering calling it quits.
The answer should come in the next few weeks, as Winfrey’s contract with her syndicator King World requires the queen of talk to decide whether the 1995-96 season will be her last. Winfrey’s contract with King World, sources said, requires her to let the syndication giant know within the next month whether she will return.
Despite all the rumors that she may be getting ready to leave while still on top of the game, most industry observers expect her to renew and keep on talking. King World’s deal with Winfrey allows her to decide whether to keep talking on a yearly basis until the year 2000.
