*Oprah Winfrey has booked disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong for his first interview since he was stripped of seven Tour de France titles over doping allegations.

On a special 90-minute Thursday night episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” airing Jan. 17 (9 – 10:30 p.m. ET/PT) on OWN, Armstrong will address the his entire scandal, including years of cheating accusations and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his storied cycling career.

In addition, the interview – to be done at his home in Austin, Texas – will be simultaneously streamed live worldwide on Oprah.com. However, it’s unclear if the stream is of a pre-taped interview or will be done live. Nicole Nichols, a spokeswoman for Oprah Winfrey Network & Harpo Studios, declined comment.

 Late last year, Armstrong resigned as chairman of the foundation he created, Livestrong, which has raised hundreds of millions of dollars in the fight against cancer.
