Oprah Winfrey and Discovery Communications announced Tuesday that next year, the Discovery Health network will be all hers – and she didn't shell out one dime.

So exactly how did she work that deal?

The media mogul turned over her Web site to Discovery, according to The Associated Press, making her chairman of the network.

"The focus of the channel will be the focus of Oprah's brand, which is to educate and inspire people to live the best life they can," David Zaslav, Discovery Communications chief told AP.
