Oprah Winfrey admits creating OWN network was mistake

Washington: Oprah Winfrey has revealed that launching OWN - Oprah Winfrey Network, was one giant mistake.

The 58-year-old talk show host appeared on ‘CBS This Morning’, confessing that she might not have created OWN if she could do it all over again.

“The idea of creating a network was something that I wanted to do. Had I known that it was this difficult, I might have done something else,” TMZ.com quoted her as saying.

“If I knew then what I know now, I might have made different choices. If I were writing a book about it, I could call the book ‘101 Mistakes’,” she added.

According to previous reports, OWN has been struggling and has chopped off a large chunk of network employees last month right after it was forced to cancel Rosie O’Donnell’s show.
