Thanks to TLC reader Kyle we are now getting word that an interview with Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling will air on on the Friday, October 1, episode of the nationally syndicated "The Oprah Winfrey Show."  The DVR listing reads:

All New! On Location in Scotland: Oprah & Harry Potter Phenom Billionaire J.K. Rowling: All new! Oprah sits down with the billionaire behind the "Harry Potter" empire: J.K. Rowling.
A listing on WSOC, the local ABC affiliate for Charlotte, North Carolina, confirms the report, and offers and expanded preview of the episode.  Quoteage:
Friday, October 1
All New! On Location In Scotland: Oprah & “Harry Potter Phenom” Billionaire J.K. Rowling (PG)
She's the “Beatles" of bestsellers, the first self-made billionaire author in history – selling more than 400 million books and captivating readers in 69 languages and 200 countries. Today Oprah is on location in Scotland with J.K. Rowling, the billionaire mom behind the “Harry Potter” empire as she takes on the harsh critics, and opens up about depression, her biggest regrets, and the love of her life. Find out how her epic failure became a billion dollar success story, and why she turned down an offer from the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Join us for a fascinating hour, on Friday's Oprah. 
As readers will recall, earlier this month TLC reported that "The Oprah Winfrey Show" was looking for "fans willing to appear on the programme to talk about how J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series has inspired them or their family."  We await further confirmation on the airing of this episode, and will update you when such information becomes available.  To see when the "The Oprah Winfrey Show" airs in your market, a listing is available via this link.

Update:  The official Oprah Winfrey Show website has been updated to reflect the October 1st airing of the interview with Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling.  

Many thanks, Kyle!

I wish she’d be on Ellen instead, but whatever, I’m just so excited to see Jo! Maybe she’ll comment on the Scottish book?

I wonder why she’s doing Oprah now?

Jo has so much clout, that Oprah had to go to her.

Yay for Jo!!!!
