Oprah Launched Dr. Oz’s Career. Now She’s Course-Correcting by Endorsing Fetterman

Oprah stands in front of a black background at a live event and smirks.

Dr. Oz’s transformation from respected heart surgeon to superstar TV wellness grifter might never have fully happened if not for Oprah Winfrey. Winfrey started having Oz on her talk show in 2004, bringing him back as a regular guest with more than 50 appearances, even giving him the moniker “America’s Doctor.” That led to him getting his own massively popular daytime show—launched under Winfrey’s Harpo Productions banner—where he spent 13 years pushing everything from weight loss to conversion therapy.

But Winfrey is not endorsing Oz in his bid for a Pennsylvania Senate seat. During a virtual town hall event, Oprah told viewers, “If I lived in Pennsylvania, I would have already cast my vote for John Fetterman.”
