The AP Appoints Social Media Editor

The Associated Press has named Eric Carvin its Social Media Editor. Carvin was most recently a News Producer for the AP’s Nerve Center, its main editorial desk.

At his new position, Carvin will be tasked with ensuring that social media is integrated even more than it already is into the AP’s news coverage.

“No one can underestimate the power of social media in our global reportage, nor its potential pitfalls,” Tamer Fakahany, Deputy Managing Editor at Nerve Center, said. “That is why we wanted a social media editor who was a serious and respected journalist in his own right in addition to providing leadership on the social nets.”
