Chaz Ebert to Appear on Oprah's "Where Are They Now?" on Oct. 10

Chaz Ebert, president of The Ebert Company and publisher of RogerEbert.com, will be featured on the next episode of Oprah Winfrey's program, "Where Are They Now?", scheduled to be broadcast at 9pm CST Saturday, October 10th, on OWN. Other guests on the program include Christian pop star Amy Grant, former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka, army veteran-turned-"Dancing With the Stars" contestant J.R. Martinez and Oprah's longtime hairstylist Andre Walker.

Here is a sneak peek of Chaz's appearance on the program airing Saturday, in which she discusses The Roger Ebert Center at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, a project she and her late husband, film critic Roger Ebert, have long had in the works.

Chaz was previously featured on the program in 2013, following Roger's passing. The episode included footage of Roger's appearances on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," where he recalled a date he once had with the future TV icon. In 2005, Roger shared the advice he gave her in a blog post entitled, "How I Gave Oprah Her Start."
