Bono to be featured on Oprah show. 9/20/2002

According to www.rockontv.com. The Oprah Winfrey is going to be profiling Bono, the show airs on 9/20/2002. I'm not sure if he's going to appear, rockontv.com didn't give specifics. I've never watched Oprah so I don't know if this is new or a repeat. But I guess I'll be setting my vcr to record. Below is the info that appears on rockontv.com:

--------------------

About The Oprah Winfrey Show

No syndicated talk show in television can compare to The Oprah Winfrey Show's ratings history.

This is what the Oprah.com site said, although I couldn't find any appearance dates.. so it seems the show is coming up...

Bono's Mission In Africa
Can Bono save the world? Are you a fan of U2 and have you been following Bono's mission to help Africa? Maybe you or someone you know has been moved by Bono's efforts to make a difference? Has Bono's work to eliminate debt in third world countries touched your life and moved you to action? Or, has his work to reduce the AIDS and health care crisis in Africa touched your life personally or inspired you to help others in Africa? If Bono has motivated or encouraged you to become involve with helping others in Africa or other developing countries we want to hear from you.

does Bono have a new book out?

I did not think there would ever be a reason I would watch Oprah.
The longer I live, the more things change.

So was this supposed to have been aired awhile ago? Did anyone know that this was being taped? I totally would have kicked some serious butt to be at the taping of that show.....

On Oprah's official site (www.oprah.com) if you click on the link for this week's shows it DOES now list Friday 9/20/02 as the following:

Rock Star Bono's Mission to Save the World (PG)
Can a rock star really save the world? If his name is Bono, he sure is making a phenomenal effort! Meet U2's front man and learn about his ambitious humanitarian efforts and campaign to make a difference including solving the financial and health crisis in Africa.


Wow!

Wonder when they'll show that on tv in Australia?????????

Brave man Bono..Down Oprah, down girl

Zoo Confessional - I have seen the odd episode of Oprah, but not for some time now.
I seem to recall if she likes a guest she can really get gushy and waste time and there is an equal and opposite reaction if she doesn't like someone.
I think she is about to be surprised by the level of intelligence in the man. Stop worrying cass...Bono can handle Oprah.....he'll be speaking like 100 million people are watching...Go Bono Go Bono Go Bono....seriously an opportunity to spread the word.
Good news
Thanks

Hmmm...4:00 to 5:00 eastern time...that means it'll be on at 3 pm central time where I live...I'll still be in school then. I'll ask my mom to tape it, since she'll be home at that time.

I rarely watch "Oprah"...but for this I will gladly make an exception.

Boy, next Friday's gonna be a good day for me...the "Oprah" show with Bono on it, and I also checked and found out the "Simpsons" episode that U2's on is gonna be airing on Friday-I haven't seen that episode yet, and now I'll get to.

And then this coming Wednesday the "Diary" episode with Bono is gonna be on...man, what a great week T.V. wise! .

I thought Sherry Darling should, since she started Bono's Angels...but she hasn't logged in since September 3, so by the time she sees it, it will probably be too late! I sent them the link for Bono's Angels though.

I have a few questions about this....so will bono actually be in chicago for the taping or has this been taped before, possibly during the elevation tour??? and also, if he is in chicago this week for the taping, does anyone know when they usually tape the oprah show???? because if he is in chicago, i plan on searching the city for him......."I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"

I wouldn't necessarily bank on that being the time. Syndicated shows are shown at different times in different markets, so you should check your local listings to see what time Oprah is on, and on which station. It could be at any point between 9 am and 4 pm.
