Oprah Winfrey part… chez elle

Vraie révolution médiatique aux EU : selon le NY Times, l’animatrice vedette de CBS, Oprah Winfrey va mettre un terme à son émission “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” fin 2010 afin de se consacrer à sa propre chaine de télévision. Ms Winfrey est l’une des présentatrices les plus influentes du monde médiatique américain. Elle est en quelque sort incontournable. Mais depuis quelques temps son audience s’effritait.

Oprah Winfrey will end her talk show in September 2011.

A spokeswoman for Ms. Winfrey’s production company, Harpo, confirmed Thursday evening that Ms. Winfrey would make an announcement on her show on Friday. The plans were first reported by WABC, the ABC station in New York City.

“The sun will set on the Oprah show as its 25th season draws to a close on Sept. 9, 2011,” Tim Bennett, the president of Harpo, said in a message to affiliates.

After her broadcast talk show winds down, Ms. Winfrey will concentrate on her coming cable channel, OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. OWN will have its premiere in January 2011, according to a person with knowledge of Ms. Winfrey’s decision who insisted on anonymity.

Ms. Winfrey, 55, informed her talk show staff of her decision on Thursday afternoon. The television world had expected that she would make a decision about the fate of her program by the end of the year.

Ms. Winfrey told her staffers that she will not transfer the show to cable. She is expected to produce new programs for OWN, and may appear on some of them.

In a statement, CBS Television Distribution said, “

We have the greatest respect for Oprah and wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors. We know that anything she turns her hand to will be a great success. We look forward to working with her for the next several years, and hopefully afterwards as well.”
