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.

Newsday, Observer Name New Editors

Debby Krenek.jpgIt’s a Friday afternoon a few weeks before the end of the year, but that hasn’t stopped two New York-area papers from announcing moves at the tops of their mastheads.

The latest editor of The New York Observer, Kyle Pope, named Christopher Stewart the paper’s deputy editor, according to a memo obtained by Romenesko. The two formerly worked together at Portfolio magazine, where Pope was one of two top editors and Stewart was a contributing editor. Pope was named editor of Observer last month.

Also today, Long Island newspaper Newsday announced a changing of the guard atop its masthead, as managing editor and senior VP of digital media Debby Krenek (pictured) was picked to succeed editor-in-chief John Mancini, who resigned.

Cablevision-owned Newsday‘s former publisher Tim Knight, resigned in September, with Terry Jiminez, the publisher of amNY, which is also owned by Cablevision, stepping in to replace him.

Friday Layoffs at Newsday, Paper to Cut 5% of Workforce

Newsday_logo.pngNormally news that Newsday plans to layoff 100 people or 5% of it work force would send everyone into a Friday afternoon flurry. But coming at the end of the sort of week the media and publishing world has just experienced (not to mention the new unemployment numbers for the country) it is terrible but also somewhat par for the course.

Newsday‘s publisher Timothy P. Knight said that in the coming days “there will be additional job eliminations across the company. In total, we expect to reduce about 5 percent of our workforce.” In a memo to staff, editor John Mancini said the cuts would include “three sports columnists, an undetermined number of photographers and a reporter/researcher in the Albany bureau.” Some staffers will apparently be required to take on different jobs and those most affected will be offered buyouts
