How to Email Oprah

By Dotty Ilean

Emailing Oprah is one way to communicate with the famous television personality. It is also a way to be referenced on television, as Oprah reads and answers select emails on her television show. If you are emailing Oprah about a particular episode, you should do so soon after watching the episode on television, when it is still fresh in your and Oprah's minds.

Navigate your Internet browser to the homepage of Oprah's website. Scroll down to the bottom and click "Contact Us." Then, find the link that reads "Oprah could read your e-mail on an upcoming show!" and click on it. You will be taken to a new window.

Fill out your personal information, including name, age and email address. Double-check your email address, as a correct email address is necessary to receive a reply.

Enter your contact information. This includes your address and phone numbers.

Type your message into the box provided. There are many potential topics to write about. Write about a particular episode that was special to you, an event in your own life that relates to something Oprah has said or anything else you feel like sharing. Ask any lingering questions you have and would like Oprah to answer. You can also suggest episode themes for the future. If you are venting, remember to keep your comments honest but civil.

Read the fine print below the message box. When you email Oprah, you surrender certain rights and acknowledge that your email may not be kept confidential. Verify that you are comfortable with everything stated in the fine print.

Find the "Submit" button located at the bottom of the page. Click this button.

Tip

Oprah's website also has an online newsletter that may answer some questions in less time that it takes to receive a reply from Oprah. Consider subscribing to the newsletter through the "Contact Us" page.
