Ms. Winfrey is going to Washington.

Harpo Productions says Winfrey will host a live episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" from the Kennedy Center Opera House on January 19, the day before Barack Obama takes the presidential oath of office.

Winfrey has been a prominent Obama supporter, appearing with him at campaign rallies, donating money and cheering him at the Democratic National Convention.

She famously shed tears on a stranger's shoulder in Chicago's Grant Park after Obama's election-night acceptance speech.

A Harpo spokesman says at least two shows are planned in Washington that week, the second on Wednesday.

Information about ticketing for the show will be available next week on
