Television pioneer, actor, publisher and philanthropist Winfrey has consistently raised the bar both for media and diversity since she began building her empire decades ago. She’s always been a Superpower. And while some might argue that she’s just another network GM in the cable context, we disagree. Her power and connections could very well supercharge OWN. Remember that “The Oprah Winfrey Show” remained the top-rated talk show for 24 consecutive seasons reaching 40 million viewers a week in the States and is licensed in 150 countries. OWN debuted in 67% of U.S. households and gives her a potentially even louder microphone over time. As she told the Academy of Achievement, “The greatest thing about what I do, for me, is that I’m in the position to change people’s lives. It is the most incredible platform for influence that you could imagine.”
