Martha Stewart Living Publisher, Managing Editor, Among MSLO Fired Staff

305px-Martha_Stewart_Living_Omnimedia_Logo.svgMartha Stewart Living’s publisher and managing editor were among those fired during Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia’s massive firing spree. Yesterday Martha Stewart was feeling in the holiday spirit, so she, along with MSLO’s CEO, Daniel Dienstgave 100 staffers a DIY project — find a new job.

The New York Post reports that among the cuts were Martha Stewart Living’s Peter Medwid (publisher) and Carl Germann (managing editor); Laura Petasnick, VP of integrated sales; Daniel Taitz, executive VP and chief administrative officer; and Jess Hollander, head of digital sales.

The firings come amid grumblings that Stewart isn’t doing anything to help the struggling company.

Just last year, Stewart received over $1 million in reimbursements from MSLO for things like personal assistant costs, security and a weekend driver. “She still runs the company as if it was the 1990s,” one former MSLO staffer told the Post.
