Winfrey says creating her new cable network is turning out to be the climb of her life. "I'm climbing Kilimanjaro," she told advertisers Thursday at a presentation for OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. She quickly explained that, for her, Kilimanjaro is the offices of OWN. The network, which launched in January 2011, has struggled to find an audience. It has recently suffered staff layoffs and a management upheaval. (AP Photo/OWN, George Burns) MANDATORY CREDIT: GEORGE BURNS/OWN
