Jim Van Anglen promoted to AP's Deep South editor 

 

November 18, 2014

 

ATLANTA (AP) — Jim Van Anglen, news editor for The Associated Press in Georgia and Alabama, has been promoted to the newly created position of Deep South Editor.

 

Van Anglen will oversee coverage in Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, with an emphasis on enterprise, accountability and investigative journalism.

 

The appointment was announced Monday by South Region Editor Lisa Marie Pane.

 

Van Anglen, 50, joined the AP in 2011 and has overseen coverage of a number of significant news stories, including the aftermath of a massive tornado outbreak in Alabama, the debate over Alabama's new immigration law, the arrival of Ebola patients in Atlanta, and hotly contested U.S. Senate and gubernatorial elections in Georgia.

 

A New Orleans-based administrative correspondent also will be appointed soon with a mission to report and write high-end enterprise and provide day-to-day management over the territory.

 

"Jim is a news leader with a vision for finding ways to go after the big story, whether it's the fascinating politics in the region or accountability journalism or the latest natural disaster," Pane said. "He and his team have consistently shown a hunger for telling the most compelling stories."

 

Before joining the AP, Van Anglen spent more than a decade working as an editor at the Press-Register in Mobile, and was involved in a variety of coverage, including local, state and national politics.

 

A graduate of Boston College and a native of Bedford, New Hampshire, Van Anglen also has worked for the New Hampshire Union Leader and New Hampshire Sunday News; the Eagle-Tribune in North Andover, Massachusetts; the Athens (Georgia) Banner-Herald; and Neighborhood Publications of Bedford.
