The Forbes‘ 400 richest people in the United States came out today, and Oprah remains the true queen of media!

The Forbes 400, the annual list of the wealthiest people in the country, was released Sept. 22 and media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who is worth a whopping $2.7 billion, is 130 on the list.

“Her TV show has 40 million-plus viewers; broadcasts to 147 countries; 2.4 million read her Oprah Magazine; her site attracts 7.4 million monthly unique visitors,” Forbes reports on the 56-year-old Chicago native.

Not surprisingly, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet topped the list as the richest guys of the year, worth $54 and $45 billion respectively. Although the Forbes list is very obviously still a boys’ club, we’re glad to see Oprah is still the queen of all media!
