The Oprah Winfrey Network Has Made History With Its Best Quarter Ever

Oprah Winfrey is a global icon. A friend and I had a conversation about Oprah’s move transition to the Oprah Winfrey Network.  He said, “Oprah’s rich, but this Network is coming out of her money, not anyone elses-so this network needs to be a hit for her.” I didn’t agree or disagree with him. However, I know that this Network for Oprah is just as important as the first time she aired in Chicago. It’s a journey. It’s growth. It’s a chance. It’s a dream come true, so I’m very excited Oprah and Tyler linked up to give the network options. Congrats Oprah-to the best quarter ever. 

Oprah Winfrey has much to celebrate this holiday weekend. On Tuesday, OWN released their ratings report revealing more than 30 percent growth in viewership –their best quarter yet.  Winfrey, who is unarguably one of the most influential figures in media today, has admittedly she struggled to keep her channel afloat. “If I were writing a book about it, I might call the book ’101 Mistakes,’” Winfrey said in a CBS interview just a year ago..

OWN’s successful quarter is due in part to Winfrey’s partnership with director-actor Tyler Perry.  In the June issue of Essence, both Winfrey and Perry talk at length about the strength of their friendship and business relationship.  “We both know how rare this is,” says Winfrey. “Where else in the history of our African-American culture have two really, really successful people who can do whatever they want said, ‘Let’s come together and be even more powerful—let’s take it to the tenth power?’

  3. Love "The Have and Have Not". Love the interviews Oprah does. AA people can learn from this. We have to help each other. One fails, all fail. I would not wish to "overcome" and find myself the only person of color at the "I have made it, table".

  4. These two persons were strategically placed on this earth to show and teach us that money is only important when it’s used to combine not compete with each other. This combination gives more love, wealth and the ability to share it with the poorer nation of this planet. God has a reason for everything. The competition would have had them poorer in every sense of the word.
