Oprah Winfrey to Announce End of Her Show

November 20, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Daytime television is losing it’s queen, in a little over a year. Oprah Winfrey plans to make the announcement during a live broadcast Friday, where she will reveal the final show date as Sept. 9, 2011, her production company Harpo Productions Inc. announced in a letter, which told stations to share the news. Rumors that plans have been in the works for Oprah, to start her own cable channel, The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), as a collaboration with Discovery, have been swirling for some time.
“Oprah’s personal comments about this on tomorrow’s live show will mark an historic television moment that we will all be talking about for years to come,” Harpo’s president wrote. Oprah will concentrate on her cable network, OWN, which she is starting with Discovery Communications and will debut in January 2011. Oprah will appear on-air and have a behind-the-scenes role at her new home. The network hasn’t commented, but Oprah is expected to have a daily show, though one that’s different from the one she has now. The Oprah Winfrey Show  a daytime staple for 25 seasons, has turned Oprah into a household name, and stands as the most successful syndicated talk program, reaching 7 million viewers daily. the move is a big blow to local television stations, which use Ms. Winfrey to anchor their daytime hours.  While her daily ratings are not as big as they once were, its unlikely another daytime talk show will be able to fill Oprah’s shoes anytime soon.

    It will be interesting to see what Oprah’s future projects are. Knowing her, she is probably planning something bigger and better
