Oprah Winfrey, Nate BerkusHarpo Productions is set to announce that Nate Berkus, the tan and perfectly coiffed design expert on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show,' will be the next O-spawned daytime talk host. The news comes just weeks after the TV icon announced she'll be ending her own show in 2001 and throws another wrench into the debate on who will ultimately replace her.

The New York Times is reporting that Winfrey's production company and Sony TV will announce Wednesday the creation of 'The Nate Berkus Show,' with a possible start date in September.
