Halliday exits as Harpo PR topper

Exec leaves Oprah's org after 12 years

Lisa Halliday, head of communications and strategy at Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo, Inc., has ankled after 12 years.

The org says that Halliday is exiting “to return to Los Angeles to pursue other interests.”

Halliday had been with the company since 1999, when she left Walt Disney Studios for Harpo.

As senior VP of communication and strategy, Halliday has been on the front lines of several high-profile Winfrey ventures, not least of which was the debut of Winfrey’s troubled cable channel, OWN.

Halliday also led media relations for the debuts of syndie shows “Dr. Phil,” “The Dr. Oz Show” and “The Nate Berkus Show,” as well as overseeing Oprah print branding with Winfrey’s magazine, “O: The Oprah Magazine.”

Harpo reps said that Halliday’s replacement would be named within a month.
