The Drewreports is reporting that Oprah Winfrey who over the years stated she had a ban of rappers on her Oprah show. Decides to launch her new TV channel OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) by having on Jay-Z. The preimiere episode will feature Jay-Z and Condoleezza Rice in a new series titled Master Class, that features celebrities and politicians relaying real life stories into the camera.  Jay-Z told The Wall Street Journal he immediately accepted Winfrey’s offer to be included on a show on OWN, which will launch on January 1st 2011 as a joint venture between Winfrey’s Harpo Inc. and The Discovery Network. “I didn’t even think about it,” Jay-Z said. “I just said ‘yes.’”  Other shows include Life Is Not a Straight Line, Note to Self, Swell and Visionaries: Inside the Creative Mind, which will spotlight Lady Gaga and Avatar director James Cameron.  Oprah has announced her syndicated talk show will end in September 2011, and that it will not continue on OWN thereafter. However she will host a new prime-time show on the channel called Oprah’s Next Chapter two or three times a week.


  1. Power to the people. I am all for forward movement, but at what point did you chuckle at this?
    As you stated and as we all know, Oprah has banned rappers. Suddenly she is down with Jay-Z, a well known million dollar brand name in and of itself, and now she uses him to promote her new channel.
    What did you state again? That she banned rappers from her show?
    Either she is making amends for her selfish ways or she is still selfish but realizes that help is still needed to promote her OWN fame.
    Disclaimer: I am not Oprah bashing, but if you slapped someone who did you nothing, I would tell you that you were wrong too.
