Disgraced cycling champion Lance Armstrong has apparently decided to come clean about his use of performance-enhancing substances. So, who gets the exclusive? ESPN? Bob Costas? Jim Nantz? Surely a titan of sports journalism would be required for such a massive story, right?

Nope, he’s going on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” to cry and beg for forgiveness. Excuse us while we play the world’s smallest violin.


The “no-holds barred” interview is scheduled to air Jan. 17.

Editor’s note: This post has been amended to indicate that Armstrong’s chat with Oprah Winfrey will be on her prime time program, “Oprah’s Next Chapter.”
