The talk show queen is launching her national “No Phone Zone Day” campaign today, along with a public service announcement and rallies in cities around the country. She’s been asking guests on her show, her audience members and viewers to sign “No Phone Zone” pledges for months. And Oprah’s already collected more than 200,000 signatures, including big names like Elton John, Jerry Seinfeld and the cast of Glee, who signed the pledges when they appeared on her show earlier this month.
