AP Adds Director of Interactive and Digital News Production

PaulCheungHeadshotDuring the recent annual convention of the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA), the group shared a fun photo of president Paul Cheung with keynote speaker Ann Curry. A caption-contest opportunity if there ever was one.

The well-liked Cheung has been making his presence known at the AAJA and now has a new title at Associated Press to go along with those duties. He has been named director of interactive and digital news production. From today’s announcement by AP vice president and managing editor Lou Ferrara:

As part of this move, Jaime Holguin, who as the news development manager at the Nerve Center has played a pivotal role in the execution of many of these [digital] products, will report into Paul and the new department. Jaime, as he has been, will work with the business operations on products and be the point person between the rebooted, news-focused Nerve Center and the new department.

New York to Host 2013 AAJA National Convention

The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) has announced that its New York chapter will host its 2013 national convention. The New York AAJA is the largest of 21 chapters, with 1,400 members. The last time the AAJA held their national convention here was in 2000.

“AAJA is sold on the concept of a convention where everything’s only a Metrocard away,” said AAJA National President Doris Truong in a press release. “New York is the city that never sleeps. What’s a better match for today’s 24/7 news culture?”

More details will be revealed in August at the Unity 2012 Journalism Convention in Vegas.
