Oprah XM Radio Deal

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - XM Satellite Radio and Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Radio have signed a three-year, $55 million deal to launch a channel featuring the popular talk show host, the companies said Thursday.

"Oprah and Friends," which will start broadcasting in September, will feature original programming from Harpo Radio, including a weekly reality radio show with Winfrey and her best friend Gayle King, XM (Research) said in a statement.

Daily programming on the channel will cover topics ranging from nutrition and fitness to self improvement and current events. Several popular "Oprah" personalities, including Bob Greene and Dr. Mehmet Oz will appear on the show.

"Oprah Winfrey is a prolific force in our culture whose unprecedented achievements in television, film, publishing and philanthropy will bring an amazing radio experience to the XM nation of subscribers," Hugh Panero, president and CEO of XM Satellite Radio, said in the statement.
