APME now welcomes broadcasters, journalism educators, students


The Associated Press Managing Editors (APME) board has voted unanimously to open its ranks to broadcast outlets, journalism educators and top students "as a way to bring together journalists from across all media platforms for training and joint projects and to recognize the strong journalism they do." APME President Hollis R.Towns explains the move:

The convergence of print, video and digital has increased rapidly in recent years, and so adding broadcasters was a natural fit. Opening our doors to journalism educators extends our reach into the educational field and allows APME to join with colleges and universities so that we both benefit from the transformation taking place in our industry. These changes are just the beginning of an even brighter future for our organization.
