Armstrong Agrees to Oprah Interview

After being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, Lance Armstrong will give his first "no-holds-barred" interview with Oprah Winfrey. Will he confess to doping during competition?

The cyclist sits down with Winfrey in his Austin, Texas home to address the drug scandal surrounding his athletic career as well as the millions of dollars in endorsement deals he lost this past year. Armstrong, 41, was also forced to resign as chairman of the foundation he created, Livestrong, after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released an in-depth report alleging that the cyclist did in fact dope up while competing.

The highly anticipated interview will air on OWN's Oprah's Next Chapter on Thursday, January 17, and will be simultaneously streamed live worldwide on Oprah.com.
