Oprah Winfrey, 46, will be hosting her top-rated syndicated talk show at least through the 2003-2004 season, reports Reuters. The announcement was a bit of a surprise to many, because Winfrey has been so publicly evasive about the subject for the past year. But she’s signed on for two more years with Viacom Inc.’s King World productions, and she and senior members have agreed to develop other syndicated shows with King World. “I am finally at a point in my life where I’m doing the kind of shows I’ve always wanted to do — helping people to see themselves more clearly and to make choices that lead to more fulfilled lives,” Winfrey said earlier this year, according to Reuters. This season, ratings for “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which is now in its 15th season, have topped those of all other syndicated talk shows.
