    Oprah to launch new show

    It hasn’t even been a year since Oprah Winfrey said good-bye to her long-running talk show, but she’s already planning a return.

    The media maven recently announced that “Oprah’s Next Chapter” will premiere January 1, 2012.

    “After 25 years, I got myself out of the studio chair. I moved into the next chapter, and I am having more fun than ever—moving around the country and world talking to people I’m really interested in getting to know and I think viewers will be, too,” she said in a statement.

    Like her talk show, Oprah will be interviewing some of the biggest celebrities of the past and present. The premiere episode will feature Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.

    However, instead of sitting in her Chicago studio, Oprah will be out-and-about for the “riveting, enlightening, in-depth conversations,” read the release.
