Tune In to The Oprah Winfrey Show LIVE on Tuesday, October 11

CHICAGO, IL — Today, after hearing the exciting news of the capture of two child predators, just 48 hours after the launch of Oprah's Child Predator Watch List, Oprah said, "This is a great day and we're just getting started." On Tuesday, October 11, The Oprah Winfrey Show will broadcast live as Oprah presents the first $100,000 reward and shares the details of the tips, the big breaks and the captures of these fugitives.

On Tuesday, October 4, The Oprah Winfrey Show launched an initiative to highlight the stories of victims and survivors of child predator crimes. During that show, Oprah announced her pledge to provide a $100,000 reward per case to those individuals who the FBI says provided critical information leading to the capture and arrest of the fugitives featured on the show or its companion website Oprah.com. "With every breath in my body, and with you by my side, we are going to move heaven and earth to stop an evil that's been going on for far too long," said Oprah. "Before one more child lands in the headlines, we need to capture these criminals and put them away for good."
