LOS ANGELES, April 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — talkshoplive announced today that beloved TV personality Nancy O’Dell will be joined by Oprah Winfrey for an intimate conversation to mark the launch of The Nancy O’Dell Channel on talkshoplive on Thursday, April 22 at 8pm ET. The two will chat about Winfrey’s powerful new book, “What Happened to You?: Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing” which she co-wrote with renowned brain and trauma expert Dr. Bruce D. Perry, who will join Winfrey and O’Dell for the conversation. During the livestream, viewers will be able to pre-order their own copy of the book, which officially goes on sale April 27, and will have the chance to interact with Oprah by asking her questions. Viewers can log on to talkshop.live to watch and follow O’Dell’s channel.
The Nancy O’Dell Channel will host live talks with the biggest names from the worlds of film, TV, music, sports, and beyond. O’Dell, a 5-time Emmy Award-winner and favorite interviewer of celebrities for more than two decades, will have meaningful conversations with stars about their latest projects, products, and businesses while celebrating the entrepreneurship behind their latest ventures. The channel will serve as an opportunity for top talent to bring their books, music and other products directly to their fans in an intimate experience hosted by one of the most recognized and trusted celebrity journalists on television.
Having interviewed just about any celebrity you can name, O’Dell consistently quotes Oprah as a favorite. O’Dell and Winfrey have maintained a longtime friendship beginning in 2011, when O’Dell was handpicked by Winfrey and Mark Burnett to host Your Own Show, one of the OWN network’s first primetime programs. Winfrey has granted O’Dell numerous exclusive sit-down interviews throughout the years.
“I always say it’s a good day when it’s an Oprah day,” said O’Dell. “I’m honored to be launching The Nancy O’Dell Channel on talkshoplive with Oprah as my first interview! Oprah’s words are always profound and I’m looking forward to talking with her about her new book, as I believe it will change the way we see and understand each other and ourselves. It’s exciting to be a part of talkshoplive’s first-of-its-kind format, so I can bring viewers and fans the connection and access they want to their favorite stars in such a unique way. This platform is an incredible opportunity for celebrities to bring products to their fans in an interactive, shoppable environment.”
