LANCE ARMSTRONG OPRAH INTERVIEW
OWN

After years of accusations, former professional cyclist Lance Armstrong will sit down for his first no-holds-barred interview with Oprah Winfrey at his home in Austin, Texas.

During this special 90-minute episode of "Oprah’s Next Chapter," which will air January 17 at 9 ET on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, Armstrong will address the alleged doping scandal and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his cycling career. The interview will be simultaneously streamed live worldwide on Oprah.com.

Armstrong, a seven-time Tour de France winner, has remained silent since he was stripped of his titles and dropped from millions of dollars in endorsement deals after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released an extensive report accusing him of doping throughout his career.

Armstrong was given a lifetime ban on competing professionally.

In November 2012, Armstrong also resigned as chairman of the foundation he created, Livestrong, which has raised hundreds of millions of dollars in the fight against cancer.

Oprah’s relationship with Armstrong goes back to 2005 when he first came on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to discuss his battle with testicular cancer and Livestrong campaign. In April 2011, Armstrong surprised Nike co-founder Phil Knight during his final appearance on Oprah’s daytime talk show.
