The Associated Press, one of the world’s largest news organizations, named two successors on Friday to its second-ranking editor, Mike Silverman, who is retiring at the end of March.
Mike Oreskes and John Daniszewski were both promoted to senior managing editor, effective April 1, working directly for Kathleen Carroll, the executive editor.
Mr. Daniszewski, 55, had been managing editor for international news, and Mr. Oreskes, 54, had been managing editor for United States news. Each will keep oversight of his current area, while adding other parts of the sprawling operation to his portfolio, Ms. Carroll said in a memo.
Mr. Oreskes was a political correspondent, metropolitan editor and Washington bureau chief, among other positions, for The New York Times, and then the top editor at The International Herald-Tribune, before joining The A.P. last year. Mr. Daniszewski spent most of his career as a foreign correspondent, working for The Associated Press and then for The Los Angeles Times, before returning to The A.P. as an editor in 2006.
Mr. Silverman, who will turn 65 in March, has been with The A.P. for 37 years.
The A.P. has more than 4,000 employees and 240 news bureaus globally.
