A.M. Chicago is a factual information and talk show that ran for half an
hour daily from 1975 to 1986. Over the years it was hosted by Steve
Edwards, Patrick Macnee, Lendon Smith, Charlie Rose, and most famously
Oprah Winfrey, who hosted it from 1986 through 1986. It was thanks to
Winfrey that the show's popularity increased, taking it to the top of
the ratings in just a few months. In September 1986, A.M. Chicago was
relaunched as The Oprah Winfrey Show.
