Martha Stewart Gets New TV Gig

Martha Stewart will host an hour-long, daily syndicated show with a live audience when she gets out of prison, her company said Wednesday.

The show's topics will include cooking, entertaining, decorating and home renovating, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. said in a statement.

The show is to be launched next fall. Stewart gets out of prison in March and will complete her house arrest the following August.

Representatives of Mark Burnett Productions and NBC Universal Domestic Television were also scheduled to attend a news conference announcing the deal.

Stewart and her former stockbroker were convicted last March of lying to investigators about why she sold ImClone Systems Inc. stock in 2001. Stewart, who is appealing her conviction, is serving a five-month sentence at a minimum-security federal prison for women in Alderson, W.Va.

Martha Stewart Living stock was up $1.91 at $24.79 in afternoon trading on the New York Stock Exchange - near its recent 52-week high of $25.51.
