Oprah is in talks to move her Chicago-produced show to Los Angeles in 2011, Deadline.com blogger Nikki Finke reports.

With the show's syndication contract to CBS up in 2011, Winfrey would be free to move the show to her own long-delayed cable channel, Oprah Winfrey Network.

Finke reports that Winfrey's struggling network has had trouble launching without the daytime diva's own talk show. The Discovery Communications associated network allegedly gave Winfrey the ultimatum to move her show to the new channel or risk losing the cable network entirely.

Winfrey will reportedly make the announcement public within the next several weeks.

Oh no she's done so much for Chicago like ... um...

Good riddance, can she leave now. But im sure the Anti-christ will pop up again.

More food for Chicagoans!!!

Want to leave earlier Oprah? Go right ahead.

Take the emasculated (neutered?) Steadman and Obama with you.

So?????

Good riddance!

Bye!!!!

It is ALL about the MONEY!!!!

Let her go with her doublestandards self. I can't understand how she employs BeBe Winans after his domestic violence problems but dogs Chris Brown out. She lets Sarah Palin on her show but isn't woman enough to invite Dianne Carroll on her show when her book came out a couple of years ago. If it was not for women like Dianne Carroll there would be no Oprah Winfrey Show. She always has white women and their books on her show but not many black or hispanic women, ever noticed this?

Good Riddance.

Oprah is CHICAGO! Please don't go, isn't there a way to work it out without moving? PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! OPRAH work your magic. We Love you here in the CHI.

please don't leave oprah we all love you!!!! you just can't get up and move away the city and the people will miss you so much!! so think about it and i hope this will change your mind and not move away.

What did you really expect? Oprah is a business woman. There is no sentiment involved in this. She used the city to her benefit, launched her new season in the heart of North Michigan Avenue, the Magnificent Mile, shut down traffic and snarled the entire downtown area; put her considerable weight (no pun intended) behind the failed Olympic bid; got the Mayor and the 50 Aldercreatures to grant her all types of concessions, and then she up and pulls the plug. Why does anyone think she owes Chicago anything? Oprah is about Oprah . . . oh, and Gail.

I wish her well. She conned her way all the way to the bank, giving "advice" to those poor ladies (and some men) who saw her as "the Answer", the all knowing Diva of Daytime Television. She gave us Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, a book club, a few sentimental movies (and she's just made another one) and on we go to more fame and fortune - but this time the jump off point is going to be Los Angeles. Have fun in sunny California, O.

LET HER GO GOD I CANT STAND HER EVERY ONE KNOW SHE WITH GAIL KING SO WHY CHICAGO CARE LET HER GO THIS IS ABOUT CHICAGO 2016 IF SHE WOLD HAVE GOT THAT HELL MOVEING IT TO LA WOLIDNT EVEN BE TALK ABOUT THAT WHAT THIS IS ABOUT AND I WOLD LOVE TO TELL HER THAT TO HER FACE

Good riddence.

Better start planning how to shelter all those BILLIONS from the coming taxes imposed by your liberal friends you evil RICH person! You're already on the right track treating all your "charity" as a business or personal tax write-off.

So......when does the celebration begin? :D

Good for her. This will allow her to rub elbows with all of her left wingnut friends a lot more often.

Come on Down "O" !!!

I moved from chicago in 2006 to Los Angeles and it is the best!

Lovin it in L.A.

See ya soon Oprah.

Thanks for helping to rebuild the West Side. Now please go. Don't let the door hit you in what is an ever expanding target on the way out!

Why can't she still broadcast the show from Chicago, even if she changes networks?

I think it's fine with me. California has some good points, so I think she'll like it.

See ya.

What????!!! What about all the wheeling and dealing so she could blow up Michigan Avenue for days? For me, I say, so long, good bye, see 'ya! You'll be making the same mistake Donahue did when he moved to New York.

GOOD RIDDANCE!!

Don't let the door hit ya where the lord split ya, O.

My buddy in LA tells me that LA doesn't want her and to keep her big keester in Chicago where it belongs!

Well there are 44 comments now on that blog, with 39 of them basically saying "good riddance"...

The dope who pushes this Oprah all the Time Blog wont dare allow negative comments on his Pravda blog. His goal is to gain Oprahs attention for a show appearance...kind of like that Montreal guy parading himself in front of the Chicago Theater ad naseum until "Gayle" discovered him.

Gag

Oh no!!! say it aint so O!
