News reports say Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia announced today that Susan Lyne has resigned as CEO of the media and licensing company, whose stock has slumped in recent years. Lyne is best known for developing ABC Entertainment’s current big hits like Desperate Housewives, Lost and Grey’s Anatomy despite the objections of Bob Iger (who ultimately axed her and Lloyd Braun). She had been Martha Stewart’s CEO since 2004.
