NPR’s White House reporter Ari Shapiro has been replaced on the White House Correspondents Association board of directors by NPR’s Scott Horsley. The board voted Friday to elevate Horsley to the board position reserved for radio correspondents after NPR announced back in August that Shapiro would be leaving his Washington beat and moving to its London Bureau.

The WHCA board of directors manages various logistical issues for the association, including travel arrangements and Presidential access. McClatchy Newspapers’ Steven Thomma is the current board president.

Shaprio has been covering the White House since 2010, and will begin reporting from London in January 2014, according to a statement from NPR. The current London reporter, Philip Reeves, will be taking over the Islamabad desk.
