News on Oprah's OWN network and plans; re-airing of her tribute to Nate
Today (Aug. 30), ABC re-aired an Oprah Winfrey show which was billed as her farewell to Nate Berkus, before Nate started his own show (in September 2010).
The most touching part of the show was a sequence where Nate helped out Hurricane Katrina victims by collecting their pets and taking them to safety, and then contacting them later when they were in shelters away from New Orleans in order to reunite them with their pooches (and cats?). I don’t recall seeing this episode before.
Nate had often appeared on Oprah before he had his own show, and also helped with her reality contest “The Big Give”.The live Oprah show on ABC concluded in May 2011 with a big bash in Chicago.
There is an "Instinct Magazine" blog entry about Oprah’s plans for her “Own Your Life” show on her new “OWN” network, here.
Here’s a blurb about how to get your OWN show on the new Oprah network, here. I’ll have to look into this!
Daily Finance reports that Oprah’s new show will soon run in primetime and threaten the ratings on conventional networks, link here.
