In January Oprah announced the launch of her own TV network, aptly named OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, in conjunction with Discovery Communications.

OWN’s mission is to create multiple platforms for women, men and their families with a purpose and a passion: to celebrate life, to inspire and entertain, empowering viewers around the world to live their best lives, and  by doing so, lift the lives of those around them in ever-widening circles.

It is thought that Oprah plans to move her hit show to the OWN network,  which is as of yet to launch.
