Updated January 27, 2020 8.7k views 100 items

Using figures from the Forbes Celebrity 100, the richest actors, actresses, athletes, musicians and media power players are ranked in this list of world's most popular celebrities by their reach in television and radio only. Forbes releases this list alongside other celebrity 100 lists such as the 100 Powerful Celebrities With Highest Social Site Ranking and others.

This list and other Celebrity 100 lists from Forbes are calculated by surveying media visibility in a variety of mediums such as television and radio in this case. When all was said and done, for the May 2011 edition of the list, none other than Oprah Winfrey took the top spot. Despite her long-running television show coming to a dramatic end, Oprah proved that she can stay on top using her OWN television network and other appearances to remain in the public eye.

While Oprah's time in the spotlight may be winding down, there are plenty of other big names hot on her trail. The likes of NBA star LeBron James, pop singers Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, and golfer Tiger Woods rounded out the top five.
