�THE MARTHA STEWART SHOW� NAMES BERNIE YOUNG TO THE POST OF CO-EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

Former �Rosie O'Donnell� Executive Producer To Lead Team Of Nationally Syndicated How-To Series

New York, November 15, 2006 � Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. announced today that Bernie Young, Emmy-winning executive producer of �The Rosie O'Donnell Show,� has been named co-executive producer of the nationally syndicated how-to series, The Martha Stewart Show. Young will take the helm of the daytime program effective immediately. Last week, NBC Universal Domestic Television, the show�s distributor, announced that the daytime program was renewed for a third season by the NBC Owned-and-Operated stations and many other stations affiliated with major broadcast groups.

In making the announcement, MSLO President of Broadcasting Sheraton Kalouria said: �We feel very fortunate to have found someone with Bernie�s years of experience to fill this very important leadership position. His passion for getting the job done, his eye for talent and his unique ability to motivate a team make him the ideal person for this role.�

Martha Stewart, host and executive producer added: "Bernie is a seasoned professional who has enthusiasm for and a keen understanding of the kind of program we do here everyday. I am delighted to be working with him and look forward to productive and inspiring seasons of The Martha Stewart Show under his guidance."

�Bernie�s credentials speak for themselves,� noted Mark Burnett, also executive producer of The Martha Stewart Show. �He�s a terrific addition to an amazing team of talented producers and I look forward to collaborating with him. I first got to know Bernie in 2002 when I convinced Rosie O�Donnell to host the finale of the 4th season of Survivor. I knew then that Bernie was someone I'd eventually work with. I'm glad that's come true."

Young said: "I'm thrilled and honored to have been chosen to join such a successful team."

A former NYPD detective turned talent manager, Young got his start in entertainment as a result of what he describes as a �leap of faith.� With no prior experience, he jumped onto the entrepreneurial bandwagon in the mid-70s and began building a successful management business. In 1996, his client Rosie O�Donnell signed on with Warner Bros. to do a nationally syndicated talk show, and Young agreed to join her as coordinating producer. In season four, Young was named executive producer of �The Rosie O�Donnell Show�. When the show�s six- season run came to an end, Young headed up O�Donnell�s production company, developing programming for television and live theatre events.

The Martha Stewart Show is a nationally syndicated, daily �how-to� series anchored by segments that entertain, inform and inspire. Shot in front of a studio audience, the hour-long program�s format allows audience members, home viewers and special guests to participate and interact with host Martha Stewart. Featuring headline makers, A-list celebrities and everyday people who�ve accomplished extraordinary things, The Martha Stewart Show sheds new light on such subjects as cooking and entertaining, decorating, and home renovation and provides a forum for Martha Stewart�s sense of humor, love of fun and desire to teach. Martha Stewart and Mark Burnett are executive producers. The Emmy-winning series is produced by Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and is distributed by NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution to more than 95% of the country.
