In Big Bet, Oprah to Host Late-Night Show
(WSJ.com) — Oprah Winfrey plans to announce Thursday that she will host an evening show on her new cable network. The aptly named “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” an hourlong show, will probably debut late next year.
Ms. Winfrey’s new show, which could air as many as two or three times a week, will take Ms. Winfrey out of the studio setting that has been her home for 25 years and follow her around the globe for conversations in places such as Egypt and China. “I’m going to take viewers with me, going to take celebrities I want to interview with me” around the world, Ms. Winfrey said in an interview.
