Holy Mentors and Icons: George Stroumboulopoulos and Oprah Winfrey in an epic tête-à-tête!

Even in this sneak preview of the interview that will air on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight this Wednesday, January 30th at  7p.m. (7:30 NT) and 11:00 p.m. (11:30 NT) on CBC Television,  Oprah gets real about her definitive Lance Armstrong interview.

Oprah told George that she prayed before interviewing Lance, to be able to “create a space to be truthful if that's what he chose to do”.

Now that Lance has shared the career-shattering truth, Oprah told George “If he isn't afforded an opportunity to change that – to be redeemed and renewed in spirit, then nobody else is.” Watch the clip for more…

We are so excited to watch the full episode. Not only has George been one of our biggest role models and mentors, he's also given us some of the best stories, advice and inspiration from the most successful and interesting people in the world through his interviews

George joined Oprah on her “An Evening With Oprah” Canadian tour to conduct a Q&A with her in front of 15,000 people after every live show. Their Vancouver talk is the one that will air on Wednesday.

But first, more on George (who was by far the best interviewer Oprah could have paired with – takes one to know one): listen to our half hour interview with him here on Empirella from last fall, “Listen While You Work: George Stroumboulopoulos“.
