After 25 years, Oprah Winfrey and the city of Chicago officially say goodbye to Harpo Studios.
After an unforgettable 25 years, Oprah Winfrey says goodbye to her original Harpo Studios in Chicago, IL.
Oprah announced Harpo Studios’ closing last March after she entered into negotiations to sell the property in December 2014.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the lease for the famed building that housed the taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show since 1990 ended in April of this year. TMZ captured footage of the building’s final farewell yesterday as its demolition went into full swing.
While no cars or trips or good books have been given away to fans across the country for quite some time, Oprah’s former headquarters will certainly never be forgotten.
Take a look at the demolition footage below.
