John Mancini Named Assistant Managing Editor of AP Nerve Center

Former Newsday editor John Mancini has been named assistant managing editor overseeing overnight operations at the AP’s Nerve Center in New York, the AP reports.

The 25-member Nerve Center was formed last year to coordinate the work of field leaders who direct coverage in their areas. Mancini will coordinate “late-breaking coverage from North and South America, daytime content for Asia and early coverage for the Middle East and Europe, in addition to focusing on U.S. East Coast drive-time coverage.” Sounds like he has his work cut out for him!

Prior to serving as an editor at Newsday for six years, Mancini was the New York Post metro editor.
