Oprah Winfrey TV show to end September 9th, 2011

Oprah Winfrey show to end September 9th, 2011

After many years on TV Oprah is finally ending her TV show and moving on
with things in her life. She is one of the wealthiest people on the planet,
good for her, time to spend with her family and friends and spreading the
Oprah Winfrey will end her show after its 25th season wraps in 2011,
according to publicists for her production company, Harpo.

This confirmation comes after speculation that Winfrey could be moving the
popular syndicated talk show, which currently films in Chicago, to her new
cable network, OWN, which is based in Los Angeles.

Sources tell that Winfrey will host a new daily talk show on OWN,
and will also host specials for the network.

Nov. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Oprah Winfrey will announce the end of her syndicated
talk show on tomorrow's broadcast as she plans to start a cable channel with
Discovery Communications Inc.

The television host will provide further details about her plans tomorrow,
Don Halcombe, a spokesman for Winfrey's Chicago- based Harpo Inc. production
company, said today in an interview.

"The Oprah Winfrey Show," syndicated by CBS Corp., helped make the
55-year-old entertainer one of the richest Americans, with a net worth of
$2.3 billion, according to Forbes magazine. It spawned an empire that
includes a magazine as well as film and television production. Winfrey
formed a venture in January 2008 to convert Discovery Health into the Oprah
Winfrey Network.

"We have the greatest respect for Oprah and wish her nothing but the best in
her future endeavors," New York-based CBS said in an e-mailed statement. "We
look forward to working with her for the next several years."

WABC in Chicago reported the story earlier. The last show will be in
September 2011, Tim Bennett, president of Harpo, said in a letter to
stations that carry the program.

Oprah's talk show began airing in 1986, according to the Internet Movie

CBS, owner of the most-watched U.S. broadcast network, fell 42 cents to
$13.31 today in New York Stock Exchange composite trading. The shares have
gained 63 percent this year.

I hope this finds you Happy and Healthy!

All the Best!
