*Oprah Winfrey reportedly wants to host the final episode of her long-running show in a football stadium.
She’s planning a star-studded finale in September, 2011 when “The Oprah Winfrey Show” will end its 25 years run.
She’ll supposedly move the production from her Chicago studio to the city’s 61,500 capacity Solder Field, the home of the Chicago Bears football team, in a bid to pack in a bigger audience.
But Winfrey has admitted the notoriously unpredictable climate in Chicago could scupper plans for an open-air finale.
“I don’t know if that’s going to happen. You can never count on Chicago weather,” she tells TV Guide magazine.
Remember, she’s not retiring, but leaving her syndicated talk show to run her OWN — Oprah Winfrey Network.
