NEW YORK (AP) -- Oprah Winfrey wants to give someone else a chance to follow in her footsteps on her new cable network.

The talk show host is teaming up with reality TV producer Mark Burnett -- the man behind such shows as "Survivor" and "The Apprentice" -- on a show searching for the next big TV personality. "Your Own Show: Oprah's Search for the Next TV Star" will air on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Aspiring hosts can upload audition videos to Oprah.com. In-person casting calls are happening this month in Atlanta, Dallas and Orange County, California.

"Your Own Show" is scheduled to premiere in January. The show's host has yet to be announced.
