Oprah Winfrey to Interview Lance Armstrong on January 17
Posted on January 8, 2013
Oprah Winfrey has landed an exclusive interview with Lance Armstrong. The interview will air on Oprah's Next Chapter on Thursday, January 17 (9:00 – 10:30 p.m. ET/PT) on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. In the interview, Winfrey speaks with Armstrong at his home in Austin, Texas.
Oprah says Armstrong will address the alleged doping scandal, accusations of cheating, and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs during his career. A New York Times story earlier this month said Lance has been considering publicly admitting to using the drugs. CNN says that under the World Anti-Doping Agency rules an athlete who admits to using performance-enhancing drugs may be eligible for a reinstatement.
