Oprah Pulls In New Head Of Programming For OWN Network!

Filed under: TV NewsOprah WinfreyBusiness Blitz


Oh shiz! Sounds like The Big O means business!

OWN, Oprah Winfrey's new network, has definitely had some problems getting itself ready to launch, and now it appears as though the daytime talk titan is making a bold move to secure ratings success!

Sources close to Winfrey are reporting that she is so unhappy with the way things are going that less than a month before it's January launch date, she is hiring CBS' Terry Wood - who syndicated her show on the network back in the day - to take over OWN programming!

A source explains:

“One thing Oprah is not used to is low ratings.”

Wow! That's a pretty last minute switch-up!

Things must really be getting bad over there!

Best of luck, guys! We're sure building a network from scratch is not an easy undertaking!

Update: A rep from Oprah's network has contacted PerezHilton.com and personally denied the reports.
