Associated Press 'Beefing Up' Newsroom Amid Understaffing Concerns

By: Michael Calderone | Huffington Post

Brian Carovillano, the Associated Press’ incoming managing editor for U.S. news, notified employees Thursday about several recent hires and more than a dozen open positions nationwide, a move that comes amid concerns over understaffing following dozens of newsroom departures in 2013.

“As someone who started my own AP career as a temp in Rhode Island, it's good to know that we remain committed to strong state government reporting by beefing up our reporting resources during legislative sessions and by prioritizing statehouse positions when they go vacant,” Carovillano wrote in an email obtained by The Huffington Post.
