OWN founder Winfrey is more than a go-to host; she’s also a hands-on executive at the network and Harpo Studios. Under her guidance, OWN’s programing slate has added even more scripted series and two TV movies: Darlene Love biopic “My Name is Love” and “Tulsa,” based on the little-known Tulsa Race Riots. Her passion for teaching fueled the growth of online e-courses that give viewers a chance to dig deeper into subjects seen on OWN. This fall she’ll start the eight-city Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend arena tour focusing on topics important to OWN viewers. And she continues to think outside the box. This year Winfrey partnered with Starbucks to create Oprah Chai tea; all of her proceeds from the tea support youth education causes.
