During the chat, she spoke about how she’s “really feeling” about her choice.

“I didn’t rehearse the monologue. I knew what I was going to say, but the words hadn’t come out of my mouth. So I was okay until I started talking and it became real. Obviously, I got emotional because it’s real now. But I’m feeling good,” she said.

“I feel like it’s the right thing to do, but I’m charged. It’s a weird thing to announce that I’m stopping,” she continued.

Oprah said she was in “this exact position” ten years ago when she ended The Oprah Winfrey Show.

“I know what those feelings are. I also know the feelings leading up to it. So hearing you say and announcing to the world that it was your instinct and that you thought long and hard about it because anybody would know that for something that is as powerful as this show is in other people’s lives, that you would not take that lightly and that the coming to the realization that now it is time is a process.”

This star could take over for Ellen DeGeneres.
