Rosie O’Donnell Returns to Daytime Talk At Harpo Studios in Chicago

The Chicago studio where Oprah Winfrey tapes her soon-to-end talk show soon will be home to Rosie O’Donnell’s latest daytime television effort, which is set to debut on the Oprah Winfrey Network this fall, Harpo Studios announced.


“I’m delighted to welcome Rosie to the studio I’ve called home for so many years,” Winfrey said in a statement.


The network announced last summer that O’Donnell would return to television with a one-hour talk show to air on OWN. Originally they had said at the time that the show would be based in New York. But O’Donnell was convinced to move to Chicago for taping.


“I can’t wait to do my show from Chicago,” O’Donnell said in a statement. “It’s a dream come true … beyond the beyond.”


The final original episode of Winfrey’s show, which has been on the air for 25 years, is scheduled to air May 25.
