    Oprah Winfrey is beginning to have less and less reasons to visit Chicago.

    Oprah Winfrey's presence in Chicago may soon diminish even more.

    According to the Chicago Tribune, Winfrey has hired a real estate firm to options for the Harpo Studios production compound on West Washington Boulevard.

    According to a Tribune source, Winfrey is considering several options, from selling some of the four buildings, refinancing the loans or conducting a sale and lease-back transaction.

    Winfrey produced her talk show from the studios beginning in 1988 until the show's demise a couple of years ago.
