Jim Farley, VP of news and programming for WTOP, has become the first broadcaster to join Associated Press Managing Editors (APME) since its founding in 1933. The news radio vet has also been nominated to the APME board of directors.
Farley joined WTOP in 1996 after eight years with ABC News in New York as managing editor and general manager of programming for the ABC Radio Networks. Prior to that role, he spent 13 years with NBC News (radio and television) and was the last NBC News vice president of Radio News before NBC sold their radio networks in 1987. He began his career at all-news WINS in New York City in 1966 as a copy boy.
