Harpo Studios in Chicago was proclaimed "Oprah Winfrey Way"

Oprah Winfrey stays doing it big:

On Wednesday, outgoing Chicago mayor Richard Daley honored the talk show vet by naming a block in front of her Harpo Studios “Oprah Winfrey Way.”

“Your presence in Chicago has been a gift,” the mayor told Winfrey, 57, at the unveiling ceremony, adding that she is “a great ambassador for our city.” For Winfrey, who came to the city in 1984 to host A.M. Chicago, the gesture is quite a gift. In fact, the host declared the honor “better than an Oscar or an Emmy.”

“It is really just a full circle, miracle story,” said Winfrey, “that a little colored girl born in Kosciusko, Mississippi, on a red dirt road ends up with my name on a street in the greatest city in the world, Chicago.”

That’s a good look indeed!
