The director of Voice of America, David Ensor, announced Tuesday he would step down at the end of May–leaving another job to fill for the Broadcasting Board of Governors in the wake of Andy Lack‘s departure–after just six weeks on the job–for NBC.
Ensor has run the government-funded agency for four years. “I am honored to have had the opportunity to work alongside so many fine journalists,” Ensor said during a meeting with VOA staff. “You have made VOA a social-media leader in South East Asia and an affiliate-model innovator in Latin America.”
Before joining VOA, Ensor was a reporter for ABC, CNN and NPR.
