This was an emotional announcement by Oprah on her show, telling her audience her decision to retire in 2011, on her 25th season into the Oprah Winfrey show.

She won’t be out of the entertainment business though. She plans to launch her own channel on cable TV, and she named it OWN, which stands for Oprah Winfrey Network.

It’s sad to see Oprah go after all these years on tv, and I’m sure it’s a sad day for her fans. But hey, she did good. Real good actually. She gave us the Oprah Winfrey show, and in return The Oprah Winfrey Show gave her $2.3 Billion.

    Wow, now thats a huge announcement! She has been on for a long time, and she has had some very interesting people and a great run!

    There was a terminally ill child on her show back in 2005 who suggested that she should end the show on the 25th season. I guess she listened to him.

    It would be really strange if she would not develop a new show with her as the host on her new network.
