WASHINGTON (AP) - Oprah Winfrey has landed the first television interview with the hostages who were held at the Discovery Channel headquarters near Washington.

The hostages are set to appear Thursday on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” two weeks after a gunman burst into the Discovery Communications building in Silver Spring, Md. Winfrey announced the interview on her website.

Police have said 43-year-old James Lee was shot dead by officers as his three captives were preparing to make a break for it.

The hostages included two Discovery employees and a security guard. Winfrey did not say whether all three would appear on her show.

This is Winfrey’s final season for her show before she launches the Oprah Winfrey Network as a joint venture with Discovery.
