John Daniszewski
John Daniszewski, a top news executive at the Associated Press with deep experience in the coverage of major world news events, has been elected to the Pulitzer Prize Board, Columbia University announced today.

Daniszewski became AP’s vice president and senior managing editor for international news in 2009 after three decades as a reporter, editor and correspondent who has been on assignment in more than 70 countries in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia.

He is responsible for more than 500 text journalists in some 100 bureaus outside the United States producing coverage from some of the most complex and challenging news-gathering environments.

Daniszewski played a central role in AP’s opening of the first Western news and photo bureau in Pyongyang, North Korea, in 2012, and the Yangon, Myanmar, bureau earlier in 2013 – the first return to that country by a Western news agency after decades of strict  military rule.
