Ball State University’s most visible alumnus, David Letterman, will return to Muncie this November to interview one of the most visible women in the country – long-time talk show host Oprah Winfrey.  The event is scheduled for the afternoon of Monday, November 26th at Ball State’s Emens Auditorium.

The Mississippi-born Winfrey hosted The Oprah Winfrey Show from Chicago for more than 25 years.  In addition to running a production company and now her own cable network, she has been an avid philanthropist – taking up causes in America and running a leadership academy for girls in South Africa.

Letterman has previously interviewed MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Twitter’s Biz Stone in public presentations at Ball State.  The event will be a free, but ticketed event for the Ball State and local community.  Ticket pickup days will begin in early November.
