SALISBURY, Md.- The "Oprah effect" is national, so it's no surprise some local fans are sad to see the media mogul's show come to an end.

The Oprah Winfrey Show's last episode will air Seot. 9, 2011 to mark its 25th anniversary. Local fans have been featured on the show, like the ladies who work the cafeteria at North Laurel Elementary School.

"She's got really good topics," said Oprah makeover recipient Eisele Couch. "I try to pay attention to what she influences the viewers. She's just made women stronger in their field."

But women aren't the only fans. Men in Delmarva say Oprah has impacted them in a positive way, too.

"She introduced to me a lot of books," said Earl Thomas. "They're inspirational to me."

The Wicomico Public Library has seen high demand for selections from Oprah's Book Club.

"The demand goes through the roof whenever she mentions a title," said librarian Ellen Dunn.

Oprah's brand with her talk show, charity work and publications is to have lasting impact. She will move onto her OWN network, where many fans say they will follow.
