AP names Asia-Pacific news director

Mar 06, 2014

After some time, the Associated Press has its new Asia-Pacific news director at last: award-winning journalist Ted Anthony. Anthony succeeds Brian Carovillano, who was named AP managing editor for U.S. news last November.

With experience reporting from 20 countries, Anthony joined the AP in 1992 in Charleston, W.Va. and is credited with pioneering cross-platform story-telling at the news cooperative. In his new role, he will manage more than 100 of the organization's journalists for a region stretching from India to Japan, and also including Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. 

On his Twitter, Anthony shared this link, tweeting, "New adventure for me: Asia-Pacific news director for @AP. Eager to get started." 

"congrats @anthonyted! asia is lucky to have you and you are lucky to have thai food," freelancer Sarah DiLorenzo observed. Truer words.
