MSLO Co-CEO Moves to Media Advisory Firm

14_wenda_harris_millard.jpgWenda Harris Millard, who joined Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia in the summer of 2007 and became its co-CEO a year later, leaves the tower that proper etiquette built to work as president of Media Link LLC. Her new company specializes in media representation and strategic advising of media outlets.

“I am enormously excited about contributing to the quality counsel and implementation services Media Link provides to its impressive roster of international clients,” Millard, who served as chief sales officer at Yahoo before coming to MSLO, said in a statement. “I am as passionate as I have ever been about the media, marketing and advertising businesses, and I cannot think of a more opportune time or a more well-positioned company than MediaLink with which to apply my skills and knowledge in helping major global companies plan and execute intelligent marketing strategies.”

Her move, however, isn’t all gum drops and chocolate. According to the New York Post, tensions between Millard, the other co-CEO Robin Marino and Martha Stewart drove the former to MediaLink. Last week, Millard’s deputy Jacki Kelley, who came over from Yahoo to serve as MSLO’s executive vice president of media sales, left the company for a position at an advertising agency. Her boss didn’t take much time to follow her out the door.

Lunch: Katie Couric & The Fashion Flock

— DIANE CLEHANE

You’d think all the fabulous fashionistas would have fled Gotham by now (they’ve got to rest up for Fashion Week which is just around the corner). Nothing doing: The style mavens and social swans that populate the front row of those shows you can never get into were out in force today at Michael’s. Katie Couric breezed in looking chicer than ever although she couldn’t tell me whose dress she was wearing. She let me peek at the label — it was Brian Reyes. “My daughter told me about his sample sale,” says Couric. But it’s not all summer fun for the CBS Evening News anchor. She’s off to the conventions soon and promises lots of “cool things.” Says Couric: “We’ve got a lot of great new things planned — podcasts and things on the Web. I think there’s a press release going out today.” Right you are, Katie, and TVNewser has it.

Here’s the rundown on today’s crowd:

1. Hallmark honcho Henry Schleiff hosting a Court TV reunion with Hallmark staffer and Court TV alums Jennifer Geisser, Yvette Harrison and Rochelle Dire who just landed a new gig at Lime Wire.

2. Michael Hirshorn and two pals.

3. Charles Koppelman and Martha Stewart Living’s new co-president Robin Marino

4. Glamour‘s Cindi Leive (who looked tres chic with her short ‘do and killer Louboutins) and Katie Couric.
