Chairman/CEO

OWN and Harpo Studios

Winfrey’s dedication to OWN really paid off this year. Ratings are up more than 30% in the core female demographic, and the network became cash flow positive ahead of schedule. Harpo Studios-produced “Iyanla: Fix My Life” is one of OWN’s break-out series, and programs built around Winfrey herself—such as “Oprah’s Next Chapter” and “ Oprah’s Lifeclass”—are huge draws. Her exclusive one-on-one interview with Lance Armstrong was seen by millions of viewers around the world. On the scripted front, she has partnered with Tyler Perry on the drama “The Haves and the Have Nots,” and the comedy “Love Thy Neighbor.”
