AP names Southern Cone news editor

The Associated Press has tapped cross-format journalist Peter Prengaman for the role of news editor for the Southern Cone countries of Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay. Most recently a journalist and news manager who has reported for the AP from a dozen countries, Prengaman will now report to Southern Cone News Director Victor Caivano and lead a team of both Spanish and English-language reporters, videographers and photographers across the four countries.

"We are heading to Argentina!" Prengaman tweets, before following up in Spanish, "Vamos a Argentina!"

Asia-Pacific news director Ted Anthony responds, "Great guy gets cool new job. Good news for journalism in South America. Congratulations @peterprengaman."
