Oprah to Interview Jason Collins, Family

OWN scores first post-reveal interview with Collins family together

The parade of interviews for NBA center Jason Collins will include a stop on “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” for which Oprah Winfrey will be the first to talk to Collins and his family together since he became the first active player in a major U.S. team sport to reveal he is gay.

The interview, scheduled to air in primetime Sunday on OWN, will feature Collins, his twin brother Jarron, parents Portia and Paul Collins, sister-in-law Elsa Collins and aunt Teri Jackson, a San Francisco Superior Court judge and the first family member the Los Angeles native came out to.

After writing a first-person piece for Sports Illustrated that was published Monday, Collins gave his first follow-up interview to ABC’s “Good Morning America” and has also spoken with TNT’s “Inside the NBA” and Bill Simmons of ESPN’s Grantland, among others.  In addition, such figures as Collins’ former fiancee, Carolyn Moos, have been interviewed by Piers Morgan on CNN.
