TV Week reports (and FishbowlDC confirms), Ian Cameron will be named EP of “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” An official announcement is expected later today.

Cameron is currently a senior producer for World News with Charles Gibson, based out of Washington.

Cameron replaces Kathy O’Hearn, who ABC News announced would be leaving the position in July to become a producer of special-event political coverage for the network.

I’m pleased to announce that Ian Cameron has been named executive producer of This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Ian has 23 years of broadcast journalism experience, and he lives and breathes politics. His editorial acumen and knowledge of Washington will be an enormous asset to the program.

For the past seven years Ian has served as the Washington senior producer for World News with Charles Gibson. He began his career at ABC News in 1998 as a producer for World News with Peter Jennings, where he managed an investigative team of reporters and led the editorial direction for the show’s popular Your Money segments. Ian was a part of the ABC News team recognized with a Peabody Award for coverage of 9/11 and the events that followed.

Please join me in congratulating Ian on his new role.
