Oprah Winfrey Talks Struggles With 'OWN' Network


The OWN network continues to struggle to get on its feet, despite being produced by Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions and Discovery Communications. Yesterday, the talk show titan acknowledged the struggles in running a network, and admitted mistakes were made. 
“The Big O appeared today on CBS This Morning, confessing she might not have created OWN if she could do it all over again — ‘The idea of creating a network was something that I wanted to do. Had I known that it was this difficult, I might have done something else.’
She added, ‘If I knew then what I know now, I might have made different choices. If I were writing a book about it, I could call the book ’101 Mistakes.’”

OWN has been riddled with problems since its launch in early 2011. Over the last month, the network has been forced to let go several of its employees and cancel Rosie O’Donnell’s talk show. Check out Oprah speaking candidly about the struggles of OWN in the video below:
