In what may be a response to Terry Semel's departure from Yahoo, WebmasterWorld moderator martinibuster reports that Wenda Harris Millard, Yahoo's Chief Sales Officer, has left the company. Search Engine Land reports that Millard will be working at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.

This is also part of a Yahoo initiative to combine search and display advertising teams under the leadership of David Karnstedt, according to a June 24 press release. Yahoo has written in the press release that Millard is leaving "effective immediately."

However, Millard has told the Wall Street Journal that it appears that they misrepresented her departure.

"I feel badly that Yahoo has had such a tough time lately," said Ms. Millard in an interview. "And I'm sorry they announced the story this way because clearly I resigned and I have a great new job," she added.

According to forum members, Millard is "going to be missed big-time."

Forum discussion continues at WebmasterWorld.

Update: Kara Swisher has interviewed Wenda Harris Millard regarding the recent change in management. [Thanks, Christine Mohan!]
