LOS ANGELES – After 25 years on TV, Oprah Winfrey says she’s having the time of her life on the Web.

The media mogul is connecting with viewers through her weekly webcasts, and says it’s “the most fun I’ve had ever.”

Winfrey’s live webcast discussions about her new show, “Oprah’s Lifeclass,” have been so popular, they’ve been added to the lineup on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

“Lifeclass” premiered earlier this month and features Winfrey, 57, sharing her favorite interviews and insights from her long-running Chicago-based talk show.

On Fridays, she discusses “Lifeclass” lessons during an hourlong webcast with a live audience and invites viewers to comment or ask questions through email, Facebook, Twitter and Skype.

Inspiring viewers to think about things in new ways was her goal for her network, launched in January.

“That was my vision of what this network could be,” she said. “You’re interacting with people, you’re on TV, you’re saying stuff that you think is meaningful, you’re not just wasting people’s time, and people are interacting with us at the same time. It’s just a fantastic experience.”
