Lance Armstrong to appear on Oprah’s OWN for the first time since scandal
Singapore – Oprah Winfrey will speak exclusively with Lance Armstrong in his first no-holds-barred interview about the doping scandal. On Oprah Winfrey and Lance Armstrong: A Worldwide Exclusive, Armstrong will address the years of accusations of cheating, and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his storied cycling career.
The special 90-minute episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter will be simultaneously streamed LIVE worldwide on Oprah.com on January 17 at 9:00 PM ET, and air the day after on Friday, January 18, on Discovery Channel and TLC in Southeast Asia, and across Asia-Pacific. Internationally, the special will air the same night on Discovery Channel across Latin America and will roll out in other international markets across Europe, Middle East and Africa beginning Friday, January 18 and the weekend on Discovery Channel, TLC, DMAX, Real Time and Home & Health.
In the interview, Winfrey speaks with Armstrong at his home in Austin, Texas, in the only interview since the seven-time Tour de France winner was stripped of his titles and dropped from millions of dollars in endorsement deals after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released an extensive report accusing the renowned cyclist of doping throughout his career. Armstrong was given a lifetime ban on competing professionally.
