While OWN Network CEO is Fired, Oprah Admits Low Ratings Was her Mistake
Oprah Winfrey interviewed recently about how the OWN network is doing so far. She told Entertainment Weekly that she admits that she regrets starting the OWN Network at this time of rounding down the Oprah talk show was the wrong time and her mistake. She stated she has not dedicated enough time to the network while bringing her talk show to an end of 25 years.
“I’ve thought maybe it would have been better to wait until [Oprah] completely ended and then literally use it as a launch pad. If I had it to do differently and had thought of that option, I might have considered that a priority. But I don’t spend a lot of time in the regret mode.”
So though we could really care less about Oprah’s business affairs but the way in which it appeared that she fired the CEO Christina Norman just last week due to low ratings, maybe she should have thought about that before blaming all of it on Ms. Norman when it ultimately was her responsibility.
While she is worried about ratings and the flop of her network’s launch in the first quarter, truly she has so much more to worry about and that is all we have to say.
