A Salute to Oprah from Skype
As the Oprah Show comes to its grand finale this week, I reflect upon that question, and the answer is a plain and simple “ABSOLUTELY!”
For Skype, we’ve had the honor and privilege of participating in the Oprah Show for three wonderful years. I remember when the first call took place between Skype’s team and Oprah’s team talking about how to use Skype on air. We started our first project together setting up video calling for Oprah’s webcast to discuss Eckhart Tolle’s book. Who knew Skype video calling would become an integral part of her show connecting viewers and guests all over the world for three seasons?
The honor has been ours to not only become a powerful tool for The Oprah Winfrey Show, helping her share important life lessons and entertaining moments; the honor has been ours having Oprah call Skype, “The coolest thing ever.” We will miss The Oprah Winfrey Show and we wish Oprah the best luck in her new endeavor at OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network).
As a salute to Oprah and to share one of our favorite Skype moments, here’s a few video clips from a segment on her show called “Where The Skype Are You?”
And, there’s no denying that going to the final taping of The Oprah Show last week was one of my favorite moments ever where it felt like I was part of TV history. So, tune in to Oprah’s finale show tomorrow, May 25th.
