The news of Winfrey joining the long-running news magazine show was announced in January.
"I've been a big admirer of 60 Minutes since my days as a young reporter," Winfrey said in a statement at the time. "I'm so excited and proud to join forces with this historic news program, which for me represents the bastion of journalistic storytelling. At a time when people are so divided, my intention is to bring relevant insight and perspective, to look at what separates us, and help facilitate real conversations between people from different backgrounds."
60 Minutes will kick off its 50th season on Sunday, Sept. 24. For more on Winfrey's new position, watch below.
