Oprah Winfrey is closing Harpo Studios in Chicago at the end of 2015 and moving the operations for her OWN cable network to California. The Chicago studio is where she filmed "The Oprah Winfrey Show" for more than 20 years.

Harpo Studios and the Oprah Winfrey Network made the announcement Tuesday that the studio closing in December. OWN recently moved into a new studio in West Hollywood, California, and work currently done at Harpo Studios in Chicago will now be done there, The Associated Press said.

Winfrey sold the Harpo Studios property in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood to a developer last year for about $32 million. She said in a statement Tuesday that Harpo Studios has been a "blessing" in her life and she's now "looking ahead" to inhabiting her California studio.

In 2011, the city named the street outside Harpo Studios "Oprah Winfrey Way."
