Oops: Chicago CW affiliate WGN accidentally hung up on Oprah Winfrey during a phone interview this morning.

Oprah was WGN’s first guest on the expanded morning newscast. She was talking about the new OWN season when the call suddenly went to a dial tone. “This is so typical,” Robin Baumgarten said. “… How do we cut off the one guest we’ve had that people may be interested in watching?”

After a brief pause, Oprah was reconnected to the anchors in the studio. “Y’all got a few kinks to work out,” she joked. Watch the video after the jump.
