Tamer Fakahany, an Associated Press deputy managing editor, sent this memo this morning about Eric Carvin‘s appointment:
I’m excited to announce the appointment of Eric Carvin as the AP’s Social Media Editor. This is a crucial role, based within the Nerve Center, but one that will depend on daily interaction – strategizing, training and firefighting – with all the regions, verticals and formats.
Eric is known to many of you in his current job as a News Producer at the Nerve Center, where he is an integral and respected figure, both as a serious journalist and social media expert, as well as in previous reporting and editing roles in the organization over the last ten years.
Eric will report to me.
Please join me in wishing him every success in his new job.
Eric’s brother is NPR social media desk senior strategist Andrew Carvin.
