Yes, says Fortune.

According to editor-at-large Patricia Sellers, Susan Lyne -- the former CEO of Martha Stewart Omnimedia -- is in talks with Winfrey about taking on some sort of leadership role at Oprah's new OWN network.

It was rumored that Lyne (shown left) was being courted to run the new network. However, Winfrey announced yesterday that Robin Schwartz -- president of Regency Television -- would be heading up the new network.

Lyne is credited with boosting ratings during her stint at ABC for developing Desperate Housewives, which continues to be a thriving hit for the network.

How does Martha feel about all this? Stay tuned.
