The ASSOCIATED PRESS has upped EAST regional Assistant Sports Editor DAVID MEEKS to Assistant Managing Editor. MEEKS served as Sports Editor and City Editor of the NEW ORLEANS TIMES-PICAYUNE before joining the AP; he will help oversee the new AP News Center in NEW YORK and will report to Managing Editor SALLY BUZBEE.
While MEEKS comes aboard, MEDIABISTRO's FISHBOWLNY.COM reports that eleven AP staffers were let go last week and MONDAY. Seven of the staffers were in the news operations, and the rest were in the technology department. The site's sources say that more layoffs could be in the offing.
