Oprah Winfrey walked on stage for her talk show finale to a standing ovation from her studio audience.

Winfrey thanked her viewers for watching for 25 years, and encouraged them to be “more of yourself.”

In the show aired Wednesday, she told them that sometimes she was a teacher, but more often her viewers taught her.

Winfrey taped the last episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on Tuesday inChicago.

It was a simply produced series finale filled with a sense of gratitude — an entirely different feel to the star-studded double-episode farewell shows that aired Monday and Tuesday.

Winfrey announced in November 2009 that she would end her popular talk show. She has since launched her own cable network, based inLos Angeles.
