OPRAH BUMPED FROM NO. 1: Check Out The 10 Media Names On Forbes’ Celebrity 100

Glenn Beck

Forbes released its Celebrity 100 List, ranking the entertainment industry’s top power-players, including Hollywood starlets, TV personalities, sports superstars, best-selling authors, supermodels and Charlie Sheen.

The magazine’s editors used figures including pre-tax income, social media presence, media coverage, and appearances to rank the famous faces.

Oprah Winfrey, No. 1 overall last year, did not take the top spot — that honour went to Lady Gaga — but the OWN founder is still the biggest media celebrity on the planet.
