No decision on Oprah Winfrey's move to cable: Report
Reuters reports that Oprah Winfrey has not yet decided where she will move her syndicated talk show. A Harpo spokesperson told the wire service, “She has not made a decision yet. As she has previously stated, she’ll be making an announcement before the end of the year.” The news follows reports that the long-reigning queen of daytime will take The Oprah Winfrey Show from her current syndicated deal with CBS to her own Los Angeles-based cable network, OWN, when her current deal expires mid 2011 (Winfrey’s 25th year). A spokesperson for CBS Television Distribution tells EW.com, “Nothing has changed. The decision is Oprah’s to make. As we have stated repeatedly, we love Oprah and if she wants to continue her show then we want to continue to be in business with her.” A spokesperson for OWN wouldn’t comment but the architects of the network have long said that since its Winfrey’s network she would appear in shows, specials and pop-up in unexpected places.
