Washington: Oprah Winfrey has said that she misses being able to connect with her viewers on a daily basis.
The TV host - who taped 4,561 episodes of her daytime talk show at Chicago`s Harpo Studios - returned to tape the April 26 episode of Steve Harvey`s syndicated talk show ‘Steve Harvey’.
She said that everybody believes that she left but she didn`t, and still has her apartment, so she is back and forth all the time.
The 59-year-old actress said that she got a little choked up seeing people, as what she really did miss was the camaraderie with the audience every day, Us magazine reported.
She said that she wanted to keep rising, and to leave while she was still rising.
She added that when she looks back at the body of work, "those of you who watched us for years, it`s astounding."
