He is getting his own tv show on Oprah's new cable TV station., when she starts it next year.
Will miss him on her show now...
Lots of TV changes with people getting their own shows...Simon Cowell from Idol, Jillian Michaels from Biggest Loser, Nate from Oprah.
I saw a smidge of the show yesterday and how wonderful he is getting his own show. What a sweet, talented guy.
I am wondering why so many good-bye's lately when she still officially has her last season that begins this fall in September. Right?
Rebecca...I imagine it's because it takes time to launch Nate's new show, and he's going on to Oprah's own network, which is just being started. So she's probably hand-picking more than one new program for her own network. It'll be interesting to see what else it will offer. JMO

Oprah Winfrey protege Nate Berkus' coming syndicated series is getting a major boost with Chicago's WMAQ-Ch. 5 and nine other NBC owned-and-operated stations agreeing to pick the show up this fall, it was announced this morning.
Because he is a Chicago designer, there has been speculation that Berkus' show might be produced locally at Winfrey's Harpo Studios, where her syndicated daytime program set to leave the air in September 2011 is produced, but there is nothing to indicate a decision has been made on that front.
The pick-up by NBC's owned-and-operated stations, which NBC Local Media announced jointly with Winfrey's Harpo Productions and Sony Pictures Television, gives Berkus' show clearance in more than a quarter of the nation's households, including each of the six largest markets. That's critical in making the start-up viable.
There had been talk the program might be delayed a year to coincide with Winfrey's exit, but now it seems definitely on track for a fall launch.
"This will be the last show Oprah will launch on her broadcast program," said Larry Wert, who as president of Central and Western region for NBC Local oversees WMAQ in Chicago, as well as the NBC-owned stations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Dallas. "We are excited to work with Harpo, Sony and Nate, who we believe is a compelling talent who is growing in popularity."
“We believe the show, with its broad appeal and themes of lifestyle and inspiration, will be a strong fit for the NBC Local brand and resonate with our audience," John Wallace, president of NBC Local Media, said in a statement.
Berkus has been a contributor to "The Oprah Winfrey Show" since 2002, becoming something of a regular in more recent years. He also hosts program from Chicago on Winfrey's Sirius XM satellite radio channel and was host of 2008's ABC reality show, "Oprah’s Big Give," for Harpo.
