NEW YORK (AP) - TV producer Mark Burnett is creating a weekday
talk show for Oprah Winfrey's forthcoming cable channel.
The network said Tuesday that the show will have a panel format
and feature multiple hosts. The show doesn't have a name yet and is
scheduled to premiere in January.
The talk show was first reported by The New York Post.
Burnett, who can count "Survivor" and "The Apprentice" among
his many credits, was already signed by the new network to produce
a show that will search for the next big TV personality.
Winfrey's cable network will launch on Jan. 1. Its full name is
OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. A joint venture of Winfrey's Harpo
Inc. and Discovery Communications Inc., it will replace the
Discovery Health channel.
