The Repercussions of Winfrey’s Departure From Daytime TV Far Reaching

Nov 20, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Oprah Winfrey’s decision to discontinue her longrunning syndicated talk show in 2011 carries with it a long list of repercussions, according to The New York Times.

It means the loss of its signature program and millions of dollars every year in revenue for distributor CBS, and for stations, the loss of daytime’s most popular program that generates huge audiences for their local evening news.

The Times said the move also represents an big professional bet for Winfrey, who is counting on her popularity and "golden touch" with programming to sustain an entire cable channel.

  1. I think you mean 2010 (or 2011), not 2001.

  2. No I think he’s going back in time and observing an alternate dimension and future. So in fact he may be correct. However someone needs to notify him that we have already passed 2001. In fact we’re approaching 2010 in a little over a month.

  3. This is good info! Where else can if ind out more?? Who runs this joint too? Keep up the good work 🙂
