Winfrey launches hunt for new TV host

London: Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey has launched a hunt for a new TV host for a show due to go on air on her television network.

She has teamed up with reality TV producer Mark Burnett for the show, which starts in January when OWN - The Oprah Winfrey Network - goes on air.

The hopefuls are already being invited to upload videos in a number of categories including interior design and cooking, reports

"Much in the way `American Idol` finds unknown people, there`s no reason we can`t find someone who deserves their own show," said Burnett.

While visitors to Winfrey`s website can watch hopefuls and vote for them, auditions will take place in Texas and California this month.
