Garcia named assistant sports editor for East

Aug 01, 2014

Here's some happy news: the Associated Press promotes Hawaii news editor ​Oskar Garcia to assistant sports editor for the east region.

"Next up, leading @AP sports coverage in 10 states in east! A dream come true!" Garcia shared this link, also admitting, "Definitely will miss Hawaii a lot." Understandable!

"Big congrats on the new gig! (And welcome back to the mainland)" greeted economics editor Tomoko Hosaka from D.C.

"Excited to start working with @oskargarcia!" tweeted global sports editor Michael Giarrusso. Many congrats from us, as well, Oskar!

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!
