It came out in 2010 that Oprah and John Tesh dated back in the 1970s when they were both working at a news station in Nashville. An unauthorized biography of the talk show host made the claim, and Tesh confirmed the news, saying, "Oprah and I were cub reporters in Nashville nearly 40 years ago and we dated for a short time." They were living together but reportedly split because he couldn't handle the pressure of an interracial relationship.
