The cable channel is laying off 30 staffers in what’s being described as a restructuring of the network’s operations in Los Angeles and New York. In a press release Winfrey said as CEO she has a responsibility to “chart the course for long-term success for the network” and that the layoffs are a “necessary next step.”

Winfrey took over as CEO and Chief Creative Officer of OWN eight months ago. Having struggled in the ratings during its first several months on air, OWN has been enjoying an upswing since September with Winfrey’s own series, “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” leading the charge. The show took the number one spot among all cable networks with its broadcast of Oprah’s interview with Whitney Houston’s family on March 11th. OWN announced the cancellation of “The Rosie Show” last Friday citing flagging ratings.
