Oprah learned from the attention she was getting from her earlier work and took the opportunities presented to her to create a very successful talk show. The shows would last and and from that she was able to branch out and create her own network, production company, and magazine.
Oprah Winfrey owns and runs the television network OWN. It is co-owned by Harpo Productions and Discovery Communications, Inc.
OWN was launched on January 1, 2011. It replaced the Discovery Health Channel.
