Hi, I'm Lesley.

Here's a little about me:

I'm a Los Angeles-based writer, editor, and digital media specialist who has a passion for all things entertainment.

As the senior entertainment editor for "Good Morning America" and ABC News, I oversee the network's online pop culture, style, and celebrity news coverage across two websites. In addition to covering relevant day-to-day news, I also ensure that our team delves into the deeper social and political issues that are at the core our biggest stories. A regular writer and editor for the sites, I also appear as an expert on local ABC affiliates, "GMA," and "World News Now," among other programs. 

Previously, I was on staff at People magazine for seven years, covering breaking news, interviewing A-listers, and writing the occasional movie review. I also contributed written and video content to People.com.

I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and earned a B.S. in journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.  I also have an M.A. in journalism from NYU's Studio 20 multimedia program.
