Fernando Gonzalez, who has been The Associated Press’ senior producer in Havana for the past 11 years, will begin a new role as regional video editor for Latin America.

Gonzalez will lead AP’s video newsgathering operation as the news cooperative expands its video coverage across Latin America.

“Fernando takes on this job at an exciting time for AP in Latin America as we strengthen our coverage there,” said Derl McCrudden, head of newsgathering for AP global video news. “He has a wealth of experience, having traveled and worked throughout the region for 20 years, much of it for AP. He is an outstanding leader and will help AP maintain its dominant position in the region.”

Gonzalez, a native of Uruguay, will be based in Washington, D.C. Besides increasing the number of regional stories available to Latin American broadcasters, he will lead an operation that also serves the needs of AP’s wider network of global video customers.
