Two more moves at the AP

The Associated Press just promoted one and hired another: correspondent Fisnik Abrashi has been named all-formats news director for central and eastern Europe, while Kathleen Foody joins the AP as a reporter in the Atlanta bureau.

An editor who has covered wars on three continents since he came to the AP in 2000, in his new role Abrashi is charged with heading up video, photo and text coverage in a region stretching from the Balkans to Poland. 

"Congrats to @fabrashiap on the hot new job - central/eastern Europe is lucky to have him!" correspondent Cassandra Vinograd concluded.

Meanwhile, Foody (who has the best last name ever) arrives from Gannett newspapers in Wisconsin, where she has been an investigative reporter.

"Some me news: I'm joining the @AP's Georgia bureau, based in Atlanta. More excited than I can say to become part of such a great group," Foody shared on Twitter, and after an onslaught of congratulatory tweets, she added, "Done spamming you with thank you's now. Related: Journalists are the best people." We have to agree.

Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
