AP taps US News managing editor

Nov 22, 2013

The Associated Press just promoted from within its ranks, naming Brian Carovillano managing editor for U.S. news. Previously the AP's Bangkok-based Asia-Pacific news director, Carovillano now takes on a role encompassing news reports for all 50 states. 

"Big move for journalist @bcarovillano who is named by @AP as managing editor for #US news," tweeted colleague Matt Moore, the AP's Pennsylvania news editor.

"Congrats to @bcarovillano, a fine journalist and equally fine person just named @AP's managing editor for U.S. news," tweeted Kristin Gazlay, also at the AP.

"Could not be happier to have this guy as my new boss," admitted Karen Testa Wong, regional editor for the East.

"Rot roh. Better behave on the Twitter. The new boss (and AP's ME for US News) @bcarovillano is following me," South Carolina reporter Jeffrey Collins noticed. "Big congrats to a good guy."
