Oprah Winfrey to be ‘special contributo­r’ to ‘60 Minutes’


NEW YORK — Oprah Winfrey has been named a “special contributo­r” to CBS News’ “60 Minutes.”

Winfrey will bring occasional re- ports to the newsmagazi­ne starting this fall, when it begins its 50th season on the air.

Executive producer Jeff Fager called Winfrey “a remarkable and talented woman with a level of integrity that sets her apart and makes her a perfect fit for ‘60 Minutes.’”

Winfrey said her aim with her “60 Minutes” stories is “to look at what separates us, and help facilitate real conversati­ons between people from different background­s.”
