Oprah Bolts ABC

Big plans in Oprah's future, though, sadly, they are non-presidential: Discovery Communications, which is partnering with Oprah to launch the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) next year, announced yesterday that Oprah's show will cease to air on ABC via syndication in September 2011. The Oprah Winfrey Show—the crown jewel of the talker’s vast empire—will air instead on OWN. Oprah will have full editorial and programming control of the OWN network, and to the surprise of no one, will give a show to her best friend, Gayle King.
