In 25 seasons, The Oprah Show has taken on some of the biggest stories of our time.
John F. Kennedy Jr.—1996
"I've waited all my life to interview John-John!" Oprah said when introducing her rare 1996 interview with John F. Kennedy Jr.
John had just delivered a speech introducing his uncle Ted at the Democratic National Convention, launched a new magazine called George
and was just days away from a secret wedding to Carolyn Bessette.
The world mourned when John and Carolyn died in a plane crash
over the Atlantic in 1999. In November 2010, on what would have been John's 50th birthday
, Oprah looked back at her interview and remembered America's prince.
