Especially if thier ‘OWN‘ stands for the OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK. Right? God bless the Queen of Talk Show Hosts. We all know she’s retiring from her couched position on ABC in the Fall of 2011, but what then?

Oprah will actually continue to host, but this time it will be a multi-night program on her upcoming network OWN. Yes – She’s got ‘her own’. The show [Dubbed Oprah’s Next Chapter] will air two or three times a week and will feature Winfrey globe-trotting to interview prominent figures. It’s expected to premiere late next year, after Winfrey signs off of The Oprah Winfrey Show in September 2011. OWN is scheduled to launch Jan. 1, 2012 under the Discovery umbrella. Her vision for OWN “is to create a network that inspires our viewers and makes them want to be who they are on their best day.” So in essence, it’s an extension of what she’s already doing. Aren’t you always inspired to be better post an afternoon of O? I am.

The OWN Network will run a variety of shows in series, like:

Visionaries: Inside the Creative Mind
This show will highlight stars such as the Black Eyed Peas, Annie Leibovitz and Tom Ford giving viewers a look inside of their creative processes.

Your Own Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star
The show’s focus will be on Oprah teaming up with reality guru Mark Burnett, goes on the prowl for the next big small-screen talent.

Gayle King Live!
(and NO. Larry King is not mad about being the titles inspriation) 🙂 O’s BFFL radio show will go visual. Not much will change in the format of how Gayle does her current radio show or interviews her guests; the only difference is, we’ll be able to see her.

Why Not? with Shania Twain
This series will chronicle Shania’s life since her marriage to music producer Robert “Mutt” Lange ended in 2008 amid reports that he had an affair.

Speaking of “affairs” Oprah dares not to close out her ABC relationship without hosting the mother of former Senator John Edwards illegitimate baby. Mm-mm-m. Television watchers are some nosey folks. I’ll be sure to document the details here on my site if any good juice should spring forth while I’m watching. lol!

Peace and Blessings,
I’m Qui
and it’s nothing like being open and telling.

You can call me ‘the Griot literal O’
I’ll always hook you up with the online flow.
…and now you know.
