Time Warner announced yesterday (Thursday 30th September 2010) that Cooper, currently an anchor on CNN, will launch a new daytime talk show set to begin in the fall of 2011.
'The Oprah Winfrey Show' is set to air its final show in September 9th next year, therefore Cooper's show will naturally fill the void left by the queen of the daytime television.
