CBS, UPN pull plug on Stewart show



Viacom-owned CBS and UPN announced Monday that stations owned and operated by the two networks will no longer air the syndicated Martha Stewart Living show.

The show appears in markets across the country on other stations that contract individually with King World Productions, which syndicates the show.

Channel 12 contracts with King World and airs the show at 9 a.m. weekdays and will continue to do so, station vice president and general manager Christopher Sehring said Monday, "as long as the show's available."

Stewart's other show, From Martha's Kitchen, airs on the Food Network (various times) and will continue for the time being, Cindy McConkey, vice president of communications for E.W. Scripps Co. told the Enquirer Saturday. Scripps owns the Food Network.
