Will Oprah OWN the Airwaves?

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin fans may not tune in, but Oprah Winfrey takes the next significant step in her career on Saturday when she launches OWN.

The self-titled cable network is expected to reach nearly 80 million homes and, according to the goddess herself, will connect "you to your best self and to the world." Talk about a lofty goal!

Oprah says she always knew she would be a "light carrier" and that her 25-year run as a talk show host would simply be a starting point for her "next thing."

She'll appear on OWN for at least 70 hours/year, starting Saturday night with a behind-the-scenes special. Other programs will feature Oprah favorites such as Cristina Ferrare's Big Bowl of Love, In the Bedroom with Dr. Laura Berman and The Gayle King Show.

Says Winfrey:

"I'm going to be there to get this network launched. I have a commitment to do a show on the channel for the next several years to try to get things off to as good a start as possible. But, if in 25 years, I'm sitting there on the air in my rocking chair, something went wrong."

Will you tune in to OWN?
