Martha Stewart

Martha Stewart (née Kostyra; born August 3, 1941) is an American business magnate, author, magazine publisher, and television personality. As founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, she has gained success through a variety of business ventures, encompassing publishing, broadcasting, merchandising, and electronic commerce. She has written numerous bestselling books, is the publisher of the Martha Stewart Living magazine, and her syndicated talk show, Martha, is broadcast internationally. In 2004, Stewart was entangled in the ImClone insider trading affair and there was speculation that the incident would effectively be the end of her media empire. She began a comeback campaign in 2005 and her company returned to profitability in 2006. Stewart rejoined the board of directors of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia in 2011 and became chairman of her namesake company again in 2012. Martha Stewart was born in Jersey City, New Jersey. She is the second of six children born to middle-class Polish Americans Edward "Eddie" Kostyra (1912 – 1979) and Martha Ruszkowski Kostyra (1914 – 2007). When Stewart was three years old, the family moved to Nutley. She adopted the name "Grace" for her
