Lea Ann Leming starts today as the Executive Producer of ABC News Digital. Leming joins from HLN Digital, where last year she oversaw the launch of HLNtv.com. Leming replaces Ed O’Keefe who left ABC News in June for the start-up Now This News.

A CNN veteran, Leming also helped create CNN.com. In fact, she wrote the first story for the site on Aug. 30, 1995 as NATO began a series of airstrikes against Bosnian Serb targets.

Leming will report to Joe Ruffolo, SVP of ABC News Digital.
