EXCLUSIVE: CAA has lost one of its top clients. I’ve learned that Oprah Winfrey today discharged the agency she’d called home for a long time where she was represented by a team led by Kevin Huvane. It is unclear whether Winfrey, who has her own cable network, OWN, will be signing with another agency. Winfrey has been a very important client for CAA. Among other things, the agency put together her deal with Discovery Communications for OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. And after one of the agents who worked on the deal, Michael Camacho, allegedly maneuvered to run the venture, CAA quickly dismissed him.
