Oprah Shares Why She’s Always On The Cover of Her Own Magazine

For those of you who want to know why Oprah is always on the cover of her own magazine, she is finally sharing the long-awaited answer!


For almost 20 years, Oprah and Hearst Communications have sent out “The Oprah Magazine (O) with the former talk show host as the cover.

Having been a talk show host for over 25 years, Oprah shared the difficulty she had trying to find a celebrity for each show she had.

“Because I was doing the show, trying to get people to just come on the show, I knew how hard it was to find celebrities to come on the show evey single day, every week, every month, year after year….. you run out of celebrities.”

So when it came to creating her own magazine, she knew that getting a celebrity for each cover would also be a difficult task.

“I knew that if you start a magazine and you were celebrity dependent, you wouldn’t be able to continue, its just a big challenge.”

She shared that her team mentioned that she be on the cover herself, and 20 years later, she didn’t think that it would still be the same scenario.

However, since its creation, there have been covers that she shares with other major names. The very first time Oprah shared a cover was back in April of 2009, with then-First Lady Michelle Obama. She also shared the cover in December 2009 with fellow daytime host Ellen DeGeneres.
