OWN TV Youtube

Oprah Winfrey’s audition tapes from over 30 years ago have been found.

Back in 1983, Oprah Winfrey was an up and coming TV personality. According to Page Six, she worked up the courage to audition for a Chicago-based talk show who was looking for a new host. After getting the spot, Oprah brought the talk show’s rating to the highest rated talk show in Chicago. Then, the show was nationally syndicated in 1986.

TIME Magazine wrote at the time “In a field dominated by white males, she is the black female of ample bulk.” The Oprah Winfrey show ran until 2011. Watch the original audition tape below. Would you have recognized this amazing talent and hired Oprah Winfrey?
