Bush to Be on 'Oprah' Week After Gore

September 03, 2000|Associated Press

CHICAGO — Republican presidential nominee George W. Bush has agreed to a live interview with talk-show host Oprah Winfrey, a week after his Democratic rival makes a similar appearance.

Bush will appear on the talk show Sept. 18, Winfrey spokeswoman Audrey Pass said.

Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore will be a guest on the show Sept. 11, which kicks off Winfrey's 15th season. Her show announced that Bush would appear on the show just a day after the announcement Thursday about Gore's appearance. Winfrey's show is popular with women, whose votes are being hotly contested by both campaigns.

The politically oriented interviews with Bush and Gore will mark a departure from common themes of Winfrey's past shows.
