Oprah's New Show Will Be 'Smaller, Different,' Not Filmed in Chicago
Oprah's big announcement today may have surprised some, but it was old news for bloggers Roger Friedman and Nikki Finke who broke the story, and we picked up, three weeks ago.
So now that Oprah is quitting her successful talk show - that pays her some $275 million a year - what will she do next?
First things first: She's moving the hell outta Chicago!
According to Nikki, Oprah will call Southern California home and she's looking to "divest her real estate in Chicago 'as soon as possible.'"
"Why would anybody stay in Chicago? It's freezing here, and I have a mansion in Montecito that I haven't been able to enjoy," Oprah reportedly told her staff.
OWN, the Oprah's new cable channel in conjunction with Discovery Communications, will be headquarted in Los Angeles and her new show on that network will be "smaller and different".
