Martha Stewart Omnimedia CEO Gersh To Exit
Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia CEO Lisa Gersh will leave that position -- which she had held only since July -- "as directors begin to search for a successor," writes deadline.com's David Lieberman. "For months, there also has been talk of tension between Gersh, an experienced media executive [formerly at Oxygen] and the company’s namesake founder and chief creative officer," according to Keith Kelly. "Stewart was said to crave broad television exposure and was upset in January when the Hallmark Channel ended her daily talk show. Gersh worked out deals with Hulu and AOL to distribute new and archived clips from Stewart’s TV shows, but her only program currently airing on television is 'Martha Stewart’s Cooking School' on PBS."
