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.
