She figured her son, Telly Blair, was checking in to see if she wanted a soda from a gas station down the street, where he often went for fuel and snacks. “Mom, I’ve been shot,” he said. “Call the police!” Marnette, her other son Tamarcus and his 12-year-old daughter rushed to the gas station from their home in the city’s north side, a part of town long beset by violent crime. Blair’s family came upon his blue 1986 Chevy Caprice at pump No.

Apple's Big Oprah Deal Is Getting A Shock Ending

  Apple's Big Oprah Deal Is Getting A Shock Ending Oprah joined Apple CEO Tim Cook on stage when Apple TV+ was announced, a surprise guest with a huge collaboration deal. Now, that deal is apparently through.The collaboration, first announced in 2018, saw Winfrey create new programs specifically for Apple's then-new Apple TV+ subscription service, promoting the platform to new viewers. It was never, though, an exclusive deal. Winfrey collaborates with several giants, including CBS and Discovery, and indeed it was with the latter that she formed a new cable channel called OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network.

“For me, ‘The Light We Carry’ book tour will be about starting important conversations and digging deeper into the questions that all of us are grappling with as we live through uncertain times,” Obama said in a statement about the moderator lineup.

“I can’t wait to get back on the road and dive into it with such a thoughtful, impressive group of moderators,” the former first lady said.

The tour launches the same day as Obama’s latest book is released next month. Organizers said Wednesday that seven additional dates in six cities were added to the tour “due to overwhelming demand.”

The format for the book tour, complete with celebrity moderators, is similar to the events Obama held to tout her best-selling 2018 memoir, “Becoming.” Winfrey, Alexander and Norris all served as moderators as Obama promoted “Becoming” across the country.
