More turnover in the land of Portfolio. Shazna Nessa, who was multimedia producer for Conde Nast’s Portfolio, was director of multimedia and graphics for the AP. Nessa was previously the director of multimedia and graphics for the AP from 1997-2007. From The AP (via Gawker):
”’The AP is elated that Shazna will be leading our visual departments at a time of great change for our industry,’ (AP’s managing editor for sports Lou) Ferrara said. ‘Shazna has a strong track record of making innovation and new products happen.”’
The news comes one day after the AP announced it was consolidating its newspaper, broadcast, and online sales operations into a single unit in an effort to streamline its business dealings across media formats.
