The popularity of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" has transcended to another language. The Harpo production has been made available in Spanish, through Secondary Audio Programming (SAP) and close caption, which was launched on Monday, October 20.

"We are delighted to be providing the Spanish-language community with an opportunity to become part of the 'Oprah' show viewing family," Harpo Productions, Inc. President Tim Bennett said in a statement. "We'll be able to reach this audience more directly with programming that is relevant, informative and entertaining."

The show hit major U.S. Hispanic TV markets in cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Miami, Houston and Dallas as a start. More cities will follow later in the 2008-09 season.

The Oprah Winfrey-hosted talk show which enters its 22nd season, is syndicated to 214 domestic stations and 139 countries. This Thursday, October 23, the show will present twins Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, as well as Zappos.com Internet moguls who turn their passion to a business worth million of dollars.

We live in America and I don't agree with having Oprah's show now in Spanish, she is encouraging Latins not to learn English, If Oprah would go to live in any Latin American country she better learn Spanish if she wants to work, drive, eat etc. Would love to hear from her I can tell her stories about the Latins, specially the illegals. I'm very dissapointed in Oprah.
