Smith, a journalism major, is working in the publicity department at Harpo, the production company that Winfrey launched in 1986. Harpo – that’s Oprah spelled backwards – produces the Oprah Winfrey Show. Winfrey began her Chicago-based talk show in 1985, after previously working in radio and television in Baltimore and Nashville during the 1970s and early 1980s.
