Oprah Quitting?

Oprah Quitting?Oprah Winfrey will apparently leave ABC and CBS Television Distribution in 2011.After 24 years of hosting and executive producing the Oprah Winfrey show,the mogul has decided to go work full-time with OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network).Discovery CEO David Zaslav said:

“We’re talking now about what the presence will be and what kind of programming she would be involved in directly. But this is her chapter 2, and building the OWN brand online and on-air is… a core mission for her,”

But Harpo spokesperson Lisa Halliday is calling Zaslav’s comments premature and added:

“She has not made a final decision as to whether she will continue her show in syndication.”

CBS Television Distribution also released a statement yesterday,stating,it:

“would certainly welcome and hope that ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ would continue in syndication beyond [2011], but that is a decision only Ms. Winfrey will be making.”

That’s all we have for now on Oprah Quitting?
