Oprah Winfrey to have channel on YouTube site

Oprah Winfrey will get a channel on the online video site YouTube.

Harpo Productions and YouTube say the channel will offer exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage from "The Oprah Winfrey Show," which is taped in Chicago.

In a video posted on the site, Winfrey says she is "excited" to have her own YouTube channel and that it will include videos she creates herself.

Jordan Hoffner - YouTube's head of business development - says the channel offers the YouTube community more access to Winfrey and a look into what it takes to produce a hit talk show.
