Oprah Winfrey and Discovery Communications announced plans Tuesday to create "OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network."
The new multi-platform media venture will be designed to entertain, inform and inspire people to live their best lives. \
OWN will debut in 2009 in more than 70 million homes, on what is currently the Discovery Health Channel.
The net will be owned 50/50 by Discovery and Oprah's Harpo Productions. Discovery Health pulls only 20 percent of the ratings that Discovery gets, although we sometimes watch it. Count on a show or two for former WFSB anchor and Oprah gal-pal Gayle King.
