Chairman, CEO & Chief Creative Officer, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

No one likes a good comeback more than Winfrey. This year she’s the star of her OWN story, with continued momentum after double-digit ratings growth in 2012. The first series from her exclusive multiyear development deal with Tyler Perry—”The Haves and Have Nots,” and “Love Thy Neighbor”—came on strong and were ordered up for two more seasons. Tent pole shows like “Oprah’s Master Class” continue to draw viewers, and her multiplatform Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 is a winner. Then there’s the heart of the Winfrey experience—her in-depth interviews. For instance, her January sit-down with Lance Armstrong for “Oprah’s Next Chapter” reached a whopping 28 million viewers globally. While subsequent interview specials with the likes of Beyonce didn’t quite reach those levels, it’s safe to say the queen of talk is back on her throne.
