LOS ANGELES — Rosie O'Donnell is returning to daytime TV with a talk show on Oprah Winfrey's new network.
Winfrey announced the show Thursday, calling O'Donnell a true original who brings passion to everything she does.
O'Donnell hosted a syndicated series, "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" from 1996 to 2002 and won six Emmy Awards for it.
The OWN network says viewers can expect "a fun, uplifting show with Ms. O'Donnell's playful and energetic style."
O'Donnell told The Associated Press in March that she was planning an uplifting talk show that would make a difference in people's lives and build on what Winfrey has done with her show.
O'Donnell joined ABC's daytime talk show "The View" in 2006, but left after a tumultuous season that included a feud with Donald Trump and prickly exchanges with some of her co-hosts, along with higher ratings.
