*Last month, Michael Vick said he’d prefer an interview with Oprah Winfrey over CNN’s Piers Morgan.
This week, Oprah will make it happen.
The NFL star whose name became synonymous with dogfighting is scheduled to visit the “The Oprah Winfrey Show” for an episode to air Thursday.
Officials with Chicago-based Harpo Productions say the interview will cover Vick’s time in prison, his work with the Humane Society and his return to the NFL.
The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback served 18 months in prison over a dogfighting operation based on his property in Surry County, Va. In 2007, several dogs were seized from his property.
He was reinstated to the NFL for the 2009 season and has been doing public-service work, including with the Humane Society.
