A staff notice from AP DC Bureau Chief Ron Fournier (via Mike Allen’s Playbook)…
Terry Hunt, the AP’s award-winning White House Correspondent, will lead our coverage going forward. He will work with news leaders in Washington, New York and overseas to bring cohesion to AP’s coverage, whether it emerges from the markets, from the Treasury, from the Capitol or from anywhere around the world this global story develops. He will generate and assign stories and oversee short- and long-term planning with other formats and departments.
I’m pleased to announce that Jennifer Loven will succeed Terry Hunt as White House Correspondent. Jennifer, who has reported on the Bush White House for The Associated Press since 2002, is a leader at the AP and in the White House press corps. She is president of the White House Correspondents’ Association. Jennifer has been a Washington reporter for 11 years. Prior to joining the White House staff, she covered the Pentagon post-Sept. 11, the telecom and housing industries and Illinois regional issues. Loven covered the Michigan legislature and state politics from 1996-97 and was the AP’s lead breaking news and features writer in Detroit from 1994-1996. She is a native of Charlotte, N.C., and a graduate of the University of Virginia and Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.
