The End Of An Era: Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Studios Demolished In Chicago

For 25 years, Oprah Winfrey reigned supreme from Washington Boulevard on Chicago’s dear west side. In March of 2015, she officially closed Harpo Studios to focus on her new venture, OWN Network in Hollywood. This week the building that housed The Oprah Winfrey Show from pilot to universal phenomenon was demolished, and the reverberation of its falling walls was felt all around the city.

Lady O took to Twitter to express her grief.

A new headquarters for McDonald’s is reportedly going to be built in the place of this historic building.
