Score another one for Oprah.

The talk show queen will interview Eagles quarterback Michael Vick next week for an interview to air on Thursday, February 24th.

Oprah has made it known that she wanted to land Vick for an interview.

In fact, she and talk show host Piers Morgan waged a friendly bet about who would get Vick first.

Officials with Chicago-based Harpo Productions say the interview will cover Vick's time in prison, his work with the Humane Society and his return to the NFL.

Vick served 18 months in prison over a dogfighting operation based on his property in Surry County, Va. In 2007, several dogs were seized from his property.

He was reinstated to the NFL for the 2009 season and has been doing public-service work, including with the Humane Society.
