OPRAH WINFREY: Earned $7 Million for CBS Interview
Written by KingCnote on March 8, 2021
CBS paid at least $7 million to Oprah Winfrey‘s production company for the rights to Sunday’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. A spokesperson for the former Royals said they were not paid for their participation.
Harpo Productions pitched the two-hour special to all three networks. CBS picked it up for a pretty penny. In return, they charged nearly one-third of a million dollars for each 30 second commercial. That amount was twice the normal rate for CBS on Sunday nights.
CBS also purchased the international rights. Today (Monday) in England, ITV will broadcast the shocking interview. The British media has jumped on Harry’s betrayal of his family. Naturally, they blame Meghan, as they have from the beginning, for taking Harry down the wrong track. (Wall Street Journal)
