Rebecca Campbell has been given responsibility for ABC’s Daytime content and its future development in addition to her day job as president of ABC Owned TV Stations.

“Rebecca has been involved in daytime for the majority of her broadcast career, whether through producing daytime programming while at WPVI in Philadelphia or buying syndicated programming for our station group,” said president of the Disney/ABC Television Group Ben Sherwood in an email to staff.

As part of a company reorganization, Campbell takes over daytime programming from Paul Lee, who recently resigned.

Campbell started at WPVI in 1997 as program director and was later promoted to vp of programming, before her rise to president of ABC owned stations.
