5. Oprah Winfrey

The Oprah Winfrey Show premiered in 1986 and it consistently ranked as the number one talk show in nearly three decades on air. Her influence is so strong that marketers often refer to her endorsement pull as the "Oprah effect" causing sales of products to shoot up after her recommendation. She is worth 2.6 billion dollars.
