Colleagues,
I’m pleased to announce the AP’s new intelligence reporter: Kimberly Dozier.

You may know Kim as the Middle East correspondent for CBS News, where she earned a reputation as a tireless reporter covering hot spots, from Israel to the war in Afghanistan and the hunt for Osama bin Laden. She reported on the war in Iraq from 2003 until she was injured in a car bombing in 2006. For the last three years, Kim has covered the White House, the Pentagon and national security out of the CBS Washington Bureau.

Previously, she was London bureau chief and chief European correspondent for CBS Radio News as well as a television reporter for CBS News based in Israel. She has covered world events ranging from the crisis in the Balkans to the death of Princess Diana.
In the 1990s, Kim was an anchor for the BBC Radio World Service’s “World Update.” While living in Cairo, Kim did freelance reporting for The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle and other publications.

As part of Steve Braun’s terror team in Washington, Kim will help the AP break news and produce high-impact enterprise stories. She will work with AP reporters around the globe, focusing on stories about the growing security threats against the United States and its allies.

She starts late next month. This is an exciting time for WDC and Kim. Please welcome her to the bureau.

Many thanks,
Ron

From Sean McManus

It is my bittersweet task to inform you that Kimberly Dozier will be moving on to a new and exciting opportunity with the Associated Press.

Kimberly’s commitment and courage is legendary throughout the industry. Her reporting, both before and after her almost fatal injuries from an Iraqi bomb attack and a painful, arduous recovery, is a testament to the true power and purpose of the press.

I want to thank Kimberly for her extraordinary dedication and acknowledge both her excellence and fearlessness as a journalist and her many personal contributions over the years to CBS News.

Kimberly will be missed by many of us who worked directly with her and by many others she inspired. Please join me in thanking Kimberly for her work at CBS and in wishing her well in her future.
