First lady Michelle Obama joined Oprah Winfrey in her West Side studio Friday to tape an upcoming episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' about supporting America's military families.

The White House says the first lady is returning to her Chicago hometown Friday to tape one of the last original episodes of Winfrey's nationally syndicated talk show.

Mrs. Obama will discuss plans to launch a nationwide campaign to support families with someone in the military.

The first lady has become an advocate for military families. She has traveled to military installations to talk with service members about their needs and concerns and has urged Americans to volunteer time to help them.

You can catch the first lady on Oprah next Thursday, January 27, at 9 a.m. on ABC7.

Winfrey is ending her successful talk show at the end of the season after 25 years.
