Oprah Winfrey Regrets Starting OWN Network

Oprah Winfrey Regrets Starting OWN Network

Talk show titan Oprah Winfrey says that she now regrets starting the Oprah Winfrey Network and has admitted to making mistakes were made in the network’s creation. In January 2011, the network hit an all time high of 1.1 million viewers and dropped to 263,000 this February.

Co-owner of the company, Discovery Communications Inc., has spent over $300 million on the network in an attempt to make it a success, but it failed miserably.

During a recent interview on CBS This Morning, Oprah said, “Had I known it was this difficult, I might have done something else.”

She went on to say, “I didn’t think it would be easy, but if I knew then what I know now, I might have made some different choices. If I were writing a book about it, I could call it 101 Mistakes.”

Did you tune into OWN? If not, might you have watched it if it were a non-cable channel?
