Becoming Fearless is part of our larger effort to put the spotlight on what is working in our culture rather than just on what's dysfunctional. Taken individually, these stories inspire.

When Oprah Met HuffPost: Living Our Best Lives, Together

Arianna Huffington

Just about a year ago, I visited OWN studios in Los Angeles for a TV/web simulcast of Oprah's Lifeclass. As I watched Oprah effortlessly integrate her live audience with those joining online and via social media, I was struck by the realization that even though she'd been a dominant player on television for more than two decades, Oprah was, in fact, made for the Internet. She was about engagement and authenticity and connection long before the web discovered them. And since engagement is deeply embedded in the DNA of HuffPost as well, I'm delighted that we're partnering with the Oprah Winfrey Network to bring some of Oprah's best content to the HuffPost platform. So welcome to HuffPost OWN, where we'll focus on self-empowerment, healthy living for the mind and body, relationships, and deepening the conversation on, as Oprah puts it, living our best lives.
