Michael Vick, who fell from grace as an NFL star and landed in a federal prison for dogfighting, only to reemerge as a star years later, is coming to Oprah.
The talk show queen’s interview with Philadelphia Eagles quarterback is set to air on Thursday. Oprah Winfrey will also do an extensive feature on Vick.
Officials with Chicago-based Harpo Productions say she will spotlight Vick’s time in prison, work with the Humane Society and return to NFL stardom.
Vick. Oprah. The much-anticipated interview airs Thursday.
Vick served 18 months in prison over a dogfighting ring based on his property in Surry County, Va. In 2007, several dogs were seized from his property.
He was released, then reinstated to the NFL for the 2009 season and has been doing public-service work, including with the Humane Society, ever since.
Do you think Michael Vick is a changed man? Will Oprah take it to him with tough questions? Are you looking forward to seeing him on the program?
