Jackson County’s own Powerball jackpot winners are set to appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show Wednesday, the Oregon Lottery reported.

The West and Chaney families of Medford and Jacksonville won a $340 million Powerball jackpot in October 2005, and plan to talk about their lives since winning.

Oprah airs locally at 4 p.m. on ABC affiliate KDRV Channel 12.
