ABCNews.com on Wednesday said it named Randy Stearns executive producer in charge of editorial and production for the site's all-hours news service. Stearns, who's served as the site's media director for about six years, was appointed in part because of his key role in producing the online publication's new 24-hour news service, which includes live streaming video of the Iraqi war. On March 12, ABCNews.com launched "ABC News Live," a subscription live-video service also syndicated to subscribers of multimedia players RealNetworks RealOne and Yahoo Platinum. Stearns graduated from Whitman College and earned his master's in American history at Rutgers University. ABC News President David Westin announced the appointment.
