About the Sounding Board
The Associated Press Managing Editors Sounding Board is a way to foster communication between newspaper editors and the Associated Press editors in New York.
The APME panel solicits feedback from editors about AP's filing of the wires, news content and other aspects of the news cooperative's report.
Questions are posed both by New York news departments to members, and APME also poses questions to New York AP editors.
The goal is to help AP provide better service to its members, says AP Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll.
The answers are shared here. So check back to see the results of the latest survey.
Dave Minthorn, manager, AP News Administration, coordinates the surveys from New York. He can be reached at email@example.com
