She’s usually the one doing the interviewing, but it was recently announced that Oprah Winfrey will be the very first guest on “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

Piers Morgan is launching his new CNN talk show on January 17 and Winfrey is set to make an appearance.

“No one can say that Oprah isn’t a great get,” Piers told critics. “It’s ridiculous.

He continued, “She’s one of two or three of the most brilliant gets in the world. She’s a compelling interview. Everyone has interviewed Oprah over the years. Is my interview as good as the ones that have been done before? She thought so. I guarantee you’ll enjoy this one.”
