Even though her show is coming to a close doesn’t mean Oprah is ready to stop giving. In her latest move, lady O is giving Rosie O’Donnell her old studio.
It was announced today that O’Donnell’s still-untitled daily talk show on OWN, first announced in August of last year, will be filmed in Chicago at the former home of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Harpo Studios.
In a video posted on her blog, O’Donnell addressed Harpo employees, saying she was “thrilled” about the move to the Chicago. (Watch the full video here.)
“I get to work with all of you, who have created magnificent television for two decades plus,” she said. “It’s a huge thrill for me.”
The one-hour show is set to debut fall 2011.
