In what's being billed as his first "no-holds-barred interview", former cyclist Lance Armstrong will speak with talk-show host Oprah Winfrey to discuss his doping scandal and use of performance-enhancing drugs, the Oprah Winfrey Network announced Tuesday.
According to the website, Armstrong will speak to Winfrey from his home in Austin, Texas. Last October, Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and lost millions of dollars in endorsements after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a report accusing Armstrong and his fellow U.S. Postal Service teammates of systematic doping throughout his career.
The special 90-minute Thursday night episode of Oprah's Next Chapter will air Thursday, January 17(9:00 – 10:30 p.m. ET/PT) on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. In addition-the interview will be simultaneously streamed LIVE worldwide on Oprah.com.
