oprah_petaOprah Winfrey has been named the 2008 PETA “Person of the Year” for “using her fame and listening audience to help the less fortunate, including animals.”

The famous talk show host and philanthropist produced a number of shows this year that aligned with the animal rights organization’s values. From exposing the horrific abuses that occur in puppy mills, to nasty conditions for chickens, pigs, and veal calves on factory farms, and even a personal 21-day vegan diet to highlight a meat and dairy-free lifestyle. PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk said that Winfrey has used her “powerful voice to defend those without one.”

We congratulate Oprah and the work she’s done this year on behalf of animals and the environment. To read the full PETA highlight reel on Oprah’s award-winning year, jump here.
