Latest blow for Oz: Oprah dumps his radio show, replaces him with Sanjay Gupta

The Dr. Oz media empire just took a blow from the woman who helped make him famous: Oprah Winfrey. According to New York Daily News, “‘The Daily Dose With Dr. Oz,’ a ‘radio minute’ produced by Oprah’s Harpo Productions, will end May 29.”

While there has been no explanation for the switch, the news comes just over a week after Oz faced heavy criticism for featuring questionable science on The Dr. Oz Show. The public scorn has caused some to question whether Oz — who was a medical expert on Oprah’s show starting in 2004 — is now tarnishing Oprah’s legacy.

Westwood One sent a letter to affiliates offering a replacement feature, “A Better Life With Dr. Sanjay Gupta.”
