CHICAGO — “The Oprah Winfrey Show” is shutting down at the end of the season, but the lights won’t be going out at Winfrey’s studio in Chicago.

That’s because Rosie O’Donnell’s new talk show will be produced at Harpo Studios on Chicago’s West Side.

Executives at Harpo announced the move on Tuesday. O’Donnell is slated to return to daytime TV with the one-hour show on Own: Oprah Winfrey Network in the fall.

In a statement Tuesday, Winfrey says she’s delighted to welcome O’Donnell to the studio that’s been her home for years.

The final original episode of Winfrey’s show is scheduled to air May 25.
