Sally Jacobsen, an economics and foreign affairs specialist for The Associated Press, has been named international editor of the wire service, according to AP vice president and executive editor William Ahearn.
Jacobsen, 52, has been with AP since 1976 and will replace Thomas Kent, who leaves the post to become deputy managing editor of AP. In her new role, Jacobsen will oversee AP writers and editors in more than 100 bureaus outside of the United States.
Jacobsen started her career with AP in Baltimore and also covered banking in Washington, D.C., before becoming AP’s chief economic correspondent. She was a reporter in Mexico City from 1985 to 1988, and also reported from Brussels for seven years covering the European Union and NATO.
Serving as Jacobsen’s deputy will be AP veteran Nicolas B. Tatro.
