Oprah Winfrey On 'Oprah’s Next Chapter' To Premiere On OWN
Oprah Moving On
Oprah Winfrey is exploring new grounds in her new show Oprah’s Next Chapter that is set to premier on Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), a new channel to be launched on January 1. Although Winfrey is likely to keep her tone and emphasis on telling every-day life stories, the daytime TV diva is leaving her studio and getting out there to travel the world. "I'm going to take viewers with me, going to take celebrities I want to interview with me," said Winfrey in an interview to Wall Street Journal.
Another innovation is moving Winfrey from her comfort-zone daytime slot to an hour-long evening show that might air as often as three nights per week.
In addition to Oprah Winfrey's new show, OWN's headliners will also include a show featuring singer Shania Twain and a competition series to be produced by Survivor creator Mark Burnett. The show called Visionaries: Inside the Creative Mind is rumoured to feature appearances by Lady Gaga and James Cameron. Another show with a work title of Oprah Winfrey Presents: Master Class is said to feature "masterclasses" from Jay-Z and Condoleezza Rice. There might be other shows involving Winfrey as well. "My name's going to show up on that grid a lot," she says.
The Oprah Winfrey Show has been running since 1986 will wrap up in 2011 when the show enters is 25th season.
