(AP) Howard Goldberg, assistant chief of bureau for The Associated Press in Los Angeles, has been promoted to chief of bureau in New York City.
The announcement was made Tuesday by Tom Brettingen, senior vice president for Newspaper and New Media Markets.
Goldberg, 48, succeeds Jocelyn Noveck, who was named to the new position of culture writer for the AP.
As chief of bureau, Goldberg will oversee editorial, marketing, and administrative operations for the New York City bureau as well as in Long Island and Westchester County.
Goldberg joined AP 19 years ago on the national editing desk in New York, where he worked for several years as a supervisor and editor of AP’s public opinion poll. He was appointed Ohio news editor in 1998 and later became assistant bureau chief before taking a similar position in Los Angeles in 2003.
A native of Cincinnati, Goldberg graduated from Duke University and worked for three newspapers in North Carolina, including seven years at The Charlotte Observer.
