The Oprah Winfrey Show Ends

CHICAGO - Oprah Winfrey walked on stage for her talk show finale Wednesday to a standing ovation from her studio audience before thanking her viewers for watching for a quarter of a century.

She ended her show on a simple, quiet note--a marked contrast to the spectacle of the two-day, celebrity-studded bash at the United Center that preceded the finale.

"There will be no guests, no surprises," she told her audience. "You will not be getting a car. This last hour is about me saying thank you. It is my love letter to you."

Winfrey said she was eternally grateful to her audience.

"Twenty-five years and I'm still saying 'Thank you America,'" she said. "Thank you so much. There are no words to match this moment."

Winfrey told them that sometimes she was a teacher, but more often her viewers taught her. She called the episode her "last class," and talked about the lessons she had learned over the course of the show. She urged her viewers to "be the safe harbor for somebody else, to do for them what you have said the show has done for you."

She closed the show by saying her departure was "all sweet and not bitter" and telling her audience, "I won't say goodbye, I'll just say, until we meet again. To God be the glory."
