Oprah Winfrey is taking a dramatic step to help her struggling Oprah Winfrey Network (aka OWN). She’s making herself CEO and Chief Creative Officer of the channel!
Oprah expressed her excitement in a statement by saying, "I am ready to dedicate my full creative energy and focus as the full time CEO of OWN … by aligning the mission, talent and leadership.”
I think this is a great move. I mean, it’s Oprah! I don’t know why she wasn’t the CEO to begin with. After all, it is “The Oprah Winfrey Network.”

It’s still a little early to calculate how many millions of people tuned in to Oprah Winfrey’s finale show on Wednesday, but overnight ratings are showing an impressive number.
According to AdWeek, Winfrey’s farewell “love letter” to her viewers was the highest-rated “Oprah Winfrey Show” in 17 years with an overnight household rating of 13.3 – and it doesn’t take into account households in the St. Louis market, since the show was pre-empted there for storm coverage.
Entertainment Weekly adds that the overnight rating is 130 percent higher than Winfrey’s average rating, and that such an achievement hadn’t been marked since Winfrey’s February 21, 1994 episode entitled, “People Shed Their Disguises.”
