After nearly three decades of broadcasting from Chicago, Oprah Winfrey has become finally become a member of the Illinois Broadcasters Association’s Hall of Fame.

Film critic Roger Ebert was among those who honored the daytime queen Tuesday at a downtown Chicago hotel, reports the AP. Association president and CEO Dennis Lyle calls Winfrey “the epitome of broadcasting excellence.” Ebert already is a member, along with late partner Gene Siskel.

Winfrey came to Chicago in 1984 when she started hosting “A.M. Chicago” on WLS-TV. That show eventually became “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which will end this month after 25 years.
