The 62-year-old's show would have celebrated 30 years on screen this September, but she walked away in 2011 to establish her OWN TV network. She says she has no regrets about her decision as she always wanted to go out on a high.

“I never wanted to be the person for whom people were saying, 'Oh that show was so good two years ago.' I never wanted to be the person who (was told), 'You should've gotten out of the ring before you got punched stronger'.

“I never wanted to be the person who didn't know when to exit the party,” Winfrey told

“It was the most glorious, most amazing platform anybody can have to speak to millions of people every day and I think I exited in the exact right moment. So now I get to tell stories in a different way,” added Winfrey.
