Oprah Shuts Down HARPO Studios
Over 200 workers are out of a job following Oprah’s decision to shut down Harpo Studios in Chicago. While the Chicago lease continues through April 2016, Oprah decided it was time to “downsize.” OWN will offically stop producing shows there Tuesday.
“The time had come to downsize this part of the business and to move forward. It will be sad to say goodbye, but I look ahead with such a knowing that what the future holds is even more than I can see,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.
A small group of employees will transition into the OWN headquarters in Los Angeles.
