Is The Oprah Winfrey Show Moving To OWN Because of Obama Endorsement?
Of course not. But I couldn’t pass up this chance to poke fun at the ridiculous press that wants to tie everything that happens to Oprah to her Obama endorsement. As usual, this isn’t about politics, it’s about money!
CBS Television Distribution’s The Oprah Winfrey Show will depart broadcast syndication and move to Winfrey’s new cable network, OWN, when the show’s contract expires in 2011, according to a report published by Deadline Hollywood Daily’s Nikki Finke. That report is in line with what Discovery chief David Zaslav had said nearly one year ago to the day.
On Thursday afternoon executives tied to the show were issuing a round of statements saying nothing has been finalized.
