Apr 9, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Oprah Winfrey, the Chairman of OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) announced her new show “Oprah’s Next Chapter” which will soon go on air and will feature at an unspecified time slot on the OWN. “Oprah’s Next Chapter” is the newest venture of Oprah Winfrey, done in collaboration with the Discovery Channel. While OWN will start functioning from next January 1st, the show will go on air only when Oprah Winfrey completes shooting her daytime show.
Speaking about her own network, Oprah Winfrey says that it has been a “dream come true” for her. She would always work towards building content which will influence people’s lives in a big way. The other programs to be telecast on her network are a reality show hosted by Shania Twain, a competition show by Mark Burnett, and a talk show hosted by Gayle King, who also happens to be Oprah Winfrey’s best friend. Another program will also feature famous and successful people like Condoleezza Rice, Jay-Z and will.i.am.
Media analysts had different things to say on the eve of the release of OWN. They are of the opinion that Oprah Winfrey is a “brand” by herself, but as to her channel being a hit will chiefly depend on the programs being shown. “Oprah’s Next Chapter” will possibly draw many viewers say the critics.
It has also been revealed that the programs planned to be shown on OWN may take Oprah Winfrey on a global journey including countries like India and China. The programs may be featured at the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China.
