Will MTV Boss Go To Work For Oprah TV?

Deadline Hollywood Daily, Nikki Finke's blog about the entertainment business, reports that she's been told talk show host and media executive Oprah Winfrey is talking to MTV Networks Chairman-CEO Judy McGrath about running Winfrey's new cable network for "empowerment programming" -- the latest pop culture-speak for self-help guidance. Called OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network), it launches in 2010. Judy has been at MTV 27 years. Maybe it is time for a change.
