Although Oprah's never told this story publicly, she says film critic Roger Ebert played an important role in syndicating her show.

Oprah reveals she and Roger went on a date. "I think it was a date…we went out…we went to a movie…Yeah, I think it was!"

"Roger Ebert told me that syndication would be a good thing for my show," says Oprah. "And there were people who had syndicated his show who were interested in talking to me about it."
