Oprah nears decision on continuing talk show

Published on .

Oprah Winfrey will give King World Productions an answer by Oct. 6, the new deadline for her to decide whether to continue her top-rated syndicated talk show for another year after this season, Electronic Media reported. Analyst Jessica Reif at Merrill Lynch & Co. said she fully expects Ms. Winfrey to continue the show, but said the postponed decision ``highlights the annual risk King World now faces'' with Ms. Winfrey's new distribution deal. The pact gives the host the right to decline to produce and host the show each year after the 1995-96 season with one year's notice.
