Jack is a familiar face to many of you in the bureau. Since 2014, he’s served as the broadcast unit manager for U.S. video, working closely with the Washington bureau on coverage of big events, breaking news and our AP Newsmaker series. Prior to joining the AP, Jack worked as an assignment manager at WHDH, the NBC affiliate in Boston, and broadcast manager at WFXT, Boston’s Fox affiliate. What I’ve always appreciated about Jack is that his first instinct when confronted with a problem or challenge is to figure out how to solve it, not to declare it can’t be done. He’s a constant source of ideas and is eager to work closely with Washington reporters, editors and photographers.
Please join me in congratulating Jack and wishing him well in his new role.
