Oprah Winfrey to end her talk show in 2011 [25yrs feel right in my bones]

November 20, 2009
2009 AFI Film Festival Premiere of Precious

Oh My ! All mom-and-pop and unemployed population are already on tears left alone without any idea of an another messy, juicy talk show they can switch on.The Oprah Winfrey Show is to end in September 2011 after more than two decades on air, the production company behind the programme has said.A spokesman for the star’s Harpo production company would not say why Winfrey had decided to quit, but said she would discuss it on Friday’s show.

Winfrey is expected to focus instead on the launch of her own TV channel.

She already runs a satellite radio station, Oprah Radio, with presenters including Dr Maya Angelou and sex therapist Dr Laura Berman.

“The sun will set on the Oprah show as its 25th season draws to a close on 9 September 2011,” Tim Bennett, president of Winfrey’s Harpo production company, wrote in a letter to affiliates.

The Oprah Winfrey Show, currently syndicated in 145 countries, has transformed the star into a cultural phenomenon.

The introduction of Oprah’s Book Club helped authors whose novels were selected become bestsellers overnight, and Winfrey’s support for US President Barack Obama was seen as crucial to his presidential election campaign.

Winfrey’s empire also includes a magazine, books and, from 2011, a cable TV network.

OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network is a joint venture between Winfrey and Discovery Communications and is set to replace the Discovery Health Channel in more than 70 million US homes.

The end of the programme will be a blow to distributor CBS, which earns a percentage of licensing fees – estimated to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars – from the more than 200 local ABC TV stations across the US that broadcast it.

Many stations also built their schedules around Winfrey’s show, using it to promote other programmes while also delivering a large audience to their local news programming.

The Chicago emcee Lupe Fiasco speaks

November 14, 2009
Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival 2009 - Day 3

Lupe Fiasco has been on a tear lately.  Once staunchly on the wrong side of leaks and giveaways, the Chicago emcee who once printed a list of reasons why he’s upset with the current leak-heavy music scene has been releasing a tirade of freestyles via blogs and websites.  The reason for Lupe’s surge in activity can be traced to MTV’s Hottest Emcees list of 2009, and Cornell Westside’s (as he’s been dubbed) absence from the list. But for Lupe, inclusion on MTV’s list wasn’t just about ego or the current standing of Lupe Fiaso. As he told us during an exclusive interview,

“For me, another part was ‘I gotta make that list because the kids have to see that you don’t have to do this to be successful.’ If you look at it and 90% of it is negative, it’s like we gotta have something positive on the list.  That’s not taking shots at anybody.  All those people are my homeboys, but if we come down to the nitty gritty and what’s effecting the streets, you got kids getting beat to death in the streets. You really have to take the responsibility to step up and be like, ‘I have to show my success.  I have to work this hard.  I have to be to be looked at as this top ranked dude and top ranked Emcee.  It’s not because I want the glory and fame, but so kids can have a different role model or choice of role model.’  If we’re excluded from that, the top pop culture thing for Hip Hop is devoid of anything positive, oh naw, we got to go to work.  The conscious backpackers have to go to the club and go to work.”
