The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) announced on Wednesday that the talk show queen secured an interview with basketball star Jason Collins and his family.
Collins, the 34-year-old free agent who played with the Washington Wizards, became the first openly gay male athlete in a major professional sport when he came out in a Sports Illustrated op-ed earlier this week. He granted his first interview, which aired Tuesday, to ABC News' George Stephanopoulos.
OWN announced that Oprah's interview with Collins, his twin brother and the family would air on Sunday's episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter" at 8:00 p.m. (EST). Collins' aunt Teri Jackson, who was the first family member he came out to, will also join the interview.
