That’s a lot of hyphens. But it’s true: The host of the dearly departed Oprah Winfrey Show has been named the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Creative Officer of OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, according to a press release from the network. (She currently serves as chairman; Peter Liguori was named the interim CEO after Christina Norman was fired due to the network’s struggling ratings.) Tyra, you have a lot of catching up to do.
