A month after Netflix announced Barack and Michelle Obama were joining their prestigious organization, Apple fired one back revealing Oprah Winfrey as their newest family member. The Queen of media is expected to serve as a host and interviewer on the streaming platform. In a statement made over the weekend, “Together, Winfrey and Apple will create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world. Winfrey’s projects will be released as part of a lineup of original content from Apple.”

And if you’re wondering how this will work with her current deal at OWN (she sold a huge stake for $70M last year), fret not. Oprah’s contract is safe through 2025.
