Oprah Winfrey reveals she has QUIT her role at 60 Minutes after being told she was too...


Oprah Winfrey has one less job these days.

The never-not-working television icon revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that she is no longer working at 60 Minutes, less than two years after making her debut on the program.

She said that her exit had been in the works for some time, before offering up a little bit more information about what led to her decision. 

'It was an interesting experience for me,' explained Oprah.

'I enjoyed working with the teams, and I'm probably going to work with some of the freelance people on my Apple stuff, but it was not the best format for me.'

When asked to elaborate on that comment, she replied:  'How should I say this? Never a good thing when I have to practice saying my name and have to be told that I have too much emotion in my name.'
