TV and media mogul Oprah Winfrey is selling off the studio she filmed her famed show ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ from 1990 to 2011.

Oprah stopped filming her show at the Chicago-based Harpo studio when her own cable channel, Oprah Winfrey Network, debuted 3 years ago.

The studio will still remain intact, and it’s to be leased back to Harpo for two years where they will continue to produce programming for OWN. The 3.5-acre campus studio lot, which currently employs around 200 people, is expected to sell for around $32 million.
