Oprah Sirius Channel : Winfrey's Satellite Radio Network Closed

The Oprah Winfrey Channel on SiriusXM satellite radio has vanished with no explanation, other than a programming announcement that reads: “This channel is no longer available.”

SiriusXm executives opted not to renew The Oprah Channel and broadcasts ended on 1 January (15), according to the New York Daily News.

A statement from Sirius reads: “Harpo Radio and SiriusXm have announced that the production of Oprah Radio content on SiriusXm ended effective Jan. 1. Since its launch, the channel has provided informative and uplifting daily programming for SiriusXm listeners who are striving to live their best lives.”

Winfrey launched the network in 2006 and hosted her own show. The media titan’s best friend Gayle King quickly became a regular contributor and her show was often repeated to fill the 24-hour format.
