The Hollywood Reporter said that Oprah informed her staffers on Thursday of her departure and will officially announce the news on Friday.

OWN, the forthcoming cable partnership between Oprah and Discovery, launching in January of 2011, may be a home for a new Oprah show, but no deals have been confirmed yet.

I know it’s a year away and no one knows what future brings but Its kinda sad isn’t it?

Oprah is supposed to be on television FOREVER!

I remember coming home from frickin’ kindergarten to see my mom watching it! And I’m 26-years-old…

NO!! This is really depressing?! Why?! She’s been on tv since before I was born. I can’t comprehend the world without Oprah’s show. This makes no sense. I hope they change their mind before 2011.

In my opinion, Oprah’s done a lot of good in her career and I admire her for that, but it seems since she involved herself in politics, her program has turned stale. She helped to buy Obama the presidency and hurt her own image, in my opinion. I was disappointed to see her act like a giddy teenager about him. Haven’t heard her say anything recently–maybe she realizes she back the wrong “Messiah”..

She was such a “breast care” advocate, but I haven’t heard a word from her about the rationing proposed, yesterday, unless it was on today’s show. I didn’t watch.

She’s smart to quit while she’s near the top of her game. I heard, earlier than today, that the networks weren’t going to pay her the same as in the past.

Maybe she’ll buy her own station.

Oprah,good citizen.Does well for mankind with her wealth.
Lovedloved old Oprah shows which were not Jerry Springer style shows. I liked her having the audience ask questions.
She could have done both.
I like being postivie and lookig for good first.
BUT Oprah ‘s shows the past 10 years to me have been;celeb gap fest where she gushes over them, new age quacky psychobable which is dangerous,cooking shows, make-overs,ask the doctor ,BORING!!!!!!

the announcement does not make sense in the wording. It states it is ending Septe. 9th 2011. Her season never begins until September.

End of an era!! It will be a sad day… but like someone said, things can change during the coming two years.

I’m so glad finally a black/station was used to help Obama win. until this year all white media station has been helping the wrong man except Clinton, yea Oprah!, good job, she was do to go off any way, she said this before Obama election, thank god for Oprah, and good luck to her.

its the end of a era..indeed…there is no doubt that TV industry is going to fade out. kinda sad…>.<

BOO HOO

man, that’s like eons away.

@nicole

I guess you are running low on your CRAZY MEDS, Looser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All of the followers of Oprah’s religion Oprahism must be crying themselves to sleep atm.,

congrats on a very successful run.

I wanna be just like her. I will use her career model as my guide in creating my own brand.

It will never happen. You watch, as the time gets close to 9/11 she will not want to throw in the towel. She has to much of an ego.

She’s still got her deal with HBO to produce movies and is about outTurner Ted Turner.

That’s great news… She started to show her true colors with the Presidential race and I hope she takes Kanye with her.
