Tickets are "sold out" for the Oprah Winfrey show to be broadcast live from the Opera House of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts one day before President-elect Barack Obama takes the oath of office Jan. 20, but you can always watch the former Baltimore TV personality on the tube.

Miss Winfrey began her career as a reporter and co-anchor for Baltimore's WJZ-TV. According to her Black History biography, the station sent her to New York "for a beauty makeover, which Winfrey believes was her assistant news director's attempt to 'make her Puerto Rican.' She also attributes the makeover to an incident when she was told her 'hair's too thick, nose is too wide and chin's too big.' "

Miss Winfrey worked in Baltimore for seven years before moving to Chicago.

Georgetown University's board of directors unanimously selected Paul Tagliabue to serve as the next board chairman. The 1962 Georgetown graduate and former commissioner of the National Football League from 1989 to 2006 will serve a three-year term starting July 1.

"He has engaged deeply in the university since his days as an undergraduate, and his leadership will be especially meaningful now to further our ongoing efforts to enhance Georgetown's mission at this critical time in history," university President John J. DeGioia says.

Before football, Mr. Tagliabue was a lawyer at Covington & Burling in Washington, and before that a policy analyst for the Pentagon.


Out of more than 1,300 applications it has received from groups wanting to march in the Presidential Inaugural Parade along Pennsylvania Avenue, the Presidential Inaugural Committee has selected, among the other lucky few, George Washington University's float design.

According to the university's Danielle Earls, the float will be carried on two trailers stretching 70 feet and feature a large inflatable globe, a student-built mini-Baja vehicle, a real-time stock ticker and about 40 or so eager students representing GW's nine schools and colleges.

Float construction will commence in early January.


It's worth noting that the annual March for Life, in each of the past several years drawing more than 200,000 pro-life advocates, will be held in Washington Jan. 22 - only two days after pro-choice supporter and President-elect Barack Obama marches in his Inaugural parade to the White House.

The first March for Life was held Jan. 22, 1974, on the West Steps of the U.S. Capitol, attracting an estimated 20,000 pro-life Americans. It has grown in size and scope ever since.
