Oprah's Leaving Chicago?

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 5, 2009 7:30PM

Nikki Finke is reporting Oprah Winfrey is moving her show to the Oprah Winfrey Network by 2011, and will be moving production from Chicago to L.A.

Wow. Was it the Olympic loss? Is that what drove her away?

Also, keep in mind that it's Nikki Finke reporting this news, and she doesn't name her source, but if it's true this is a doozy of a scoop. Zap2It reached a Harpo rep who said, "She has not made a decision yet. As she has previously stated, she'll make an announcement before the end of the year."
