AP appoints two journos to new roles

The Associated Press announces two changes in its ranks: Charles Dharapak is named Asia-Pacific regional photo editor and Michael Catalini will be added as New Jersey statehouse reporter.

Dharapak is already a veteran AP photographer who has spent the past decade chronicling the activities and travels of U.S. presidents and American political campaigns.

"I will miss the great journalists and fellow road warriors after 11+ years of US politics. My last motorcade ride," Dharapak tweeted, sharing this photo. "I'll miss covering US politics but I'm very excited about my new assignment in Asia."

Meanwhile, Catalini joins the AP from the National Journal Daily, where he has made a name for himself as an enterprising political journalist covering the U.S. Senate.

"Congrats to @mikecatalini! Excited for all the Jersey corruption that awaits you," Politico congressional reporter Seung Min Kim tweeted.
