Oprah Puts First Man on Cover of 'O'

O, The Oprah Magazine

Oprah Winfrey is doing something she's never done before: place a man on the cover of her O magazine.

January's issue of O will feature Dr. Oz, the health expert who appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show for five seasons, on the cover alongside the talk-show titan.

"The January issue is all about firsts," Winfrey told People. "I met Dr. Oz…now here we are, over eight years later. ... What can I say? I adore Dr. Oz."

Dr. Oz is the first man to appear on the cover of O since the magazine was first published in 2000.

"As we toast to a new year and encourage readers to take the first step toward a happier, healthier life, who better to help us get on the right path than my dear friend and America's doctor, Dr. Oz," Oprah added.

Of course, the cardiothoracic surgeon-turned-television-star now hosts his own program, The Dr. Oz Show, which debuted in 2009.
