Oprah Gives Magazine Employees iPads and $10,000 Each

Oprah_closeupIt’s a lucky day for employees of O, The Oprah Magazine as the media mogul handed out each one of them 10,000 USD and an iPad.

Oprah Winfrey was celebrating the magazine’s 10th anniversary when she gave the generous gifts. The iPad comes with cases that have the employee’s initials engraved on it. All employees received the gifts, regardless of how long they have already been working for the company.

“These were personal gifts to the staff from Oprah to thank them for their hard work and dedication to the magazine,” a spokeswoman from the magazine reportedly said.

Winfrey is known for her extravagant gift-giving ways. For example, in 2004, she gave all members of the studio audience with free Pontiac cars.

The billionaire television host will be wrapping up her daily show next year as she prepare to set up her own television cable network. Forbes magazine estimates Winfrey’s net worth at 2.3 billion USD.
