Oprah Winfrey will interview bicycling champion Lance Armstrong on her TV network next Thursday in his first media appearance since he was banned from the sport for life last October for blood doping.

After the move by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and dropped from millions of dollars of endorsement deals.

In the interview for “Oprah’s Next Chapter” show, “Armstrong will address the alleged doping scandal, years of accusations of cheating, and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his storied cycling career,” according to a release from the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).

Amid talk that Armstrong will confess to drug and doping activity, his attorney Tim Herman told The Associated Press he has no knowledge of a possible Armstrong confession. "When, and if, Lance has something to say, there won't be any secret about it," Herman said.

The interview with Winfrey will be held at Armstrong’s home in Austin, Tex., and last 90 minutes.
