Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King are celebrating ET’s Nischelle Turner! Best friends took a moment to acknowledge Turner’s historic appointment as co-host of Entertainment Tonight when she ran through OG Chronicles last week.
Turner, who co-hosts the show with Kevin Frazier, is the first black woman to host the late-night broadcast in ET’s 40-year history.
“That deserves applause!” Winfrey said in OG Chronicles. “So well deserved!”
“Well deserved,” agreed King. “This is not just a job. You earned it!”
As Winfrey pointed out, she has been a viewer of ET since it was first released. “Gayle and I were in those Mary Hart years … so when you received this well deserved honor, [it] you recognized all the women who came before you as also significant, “you shared.” Because I often say, ‘There wouldn’t have been a me if there hadn’t been a Phil Donahue.’
“And there wouldn’t have been a me without you two,” Turner gushed. “I appreciate that more than you would ever know.”
Winfrey and King hosted the first live edition of the Chronicles OG on Zoom on Thursday, meeting virtually with friends and fans to discuss the recently released Oprah Daily, as well as other topics such as Winfrey’s love of bathrooms, King’s pickup line, and why Winfrey says being called “full of you. himself “is a compliment.
