Oprah Winfrey bids goodbye to Dr. Oz

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (0)

Oprah Winfrey's in-house medical and health expert is leaving his spot as a regular on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to launch his own syndicated program this fall.

Winfrey will bid Dr. Mehmet Oz farewell on Tuesday's episode of her Chicago-based talk show. His program, "The Dr. Oz Show," is to debut Sept. 14.

Oz has been featured on Winfrey's show for five years and 55 episodes. He would often offer diet tips or discuss life-threatening diseases.

Tuesday's show ends with Oz and Winfrey raising a champagne toast.

According to Oz's biography on Oprah.com, the best-selling author and heart surgeon is a surgery professor at Columbia University and directs the Cardiovascular Institute and Complementary Medicine Program at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. AP

Dr. Oz was a great guest for years. I am sure Oprah will replace him with another good doctor.

If anyone is interested, check out “The Oprah Effect” on CNBC May 28 at 9PM ET & 10PM PT. Carl Quintanilla will investigate small businesses who have been successful thanks to Oprah, and share the secrets of how they got on the show. Should be interesting!
