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

Just when it seems Winfrey’s media empire can’t possibly expand any farther, it always does. Perhaps buoyed by OWN’s success with original series like “Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots,” this summer the network launched two new Winfrey-produced dramas—“Greenleaf” and “Queen Sugar”—which both earned critical acclaim and helped make 2016’s Q3 the highest-rated, most-watched, and highest-ranking quarter in network history. Better yet, Winfrey plays a recurring character on “Greenleaf.” Despite her commitment to the new shows, Winfrey’s desire to educate others continues to power OWN’s online learning platforms like OWN Lifeclasses as well as the popular Oprah & Deepak 21-Day Meditation Experiences. Whatever the message or the medium, Winfrey magnifies it by forging connections with fans.
