Winfrey’s own production house, Harpo Prods. has announced a partnership with the video site.

The new channel, which went live last week on Friday, features a collection of supplemental video from “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” including backstage footage, highlights from guests’ appearances, and videos that Winfrey had shot herself, reports Hollywood Reporter.

The multiple-Emmy award-winning host has booked YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen to appear on her show in order to kick off interest in the new channel.

The show will also feature several YouTube-discovered stars on the program, including Tyson the skateboarding dog and Judson Laipply, the creator the much-streamed Evolution of Dance clip.

The 53-year old star will also guest edit YouTube, when she will present some of her favourite videos. (ANI)
