ASNE, APME intend to merge

The American Society of News Editors (ASNE) and Associated Press Media Editors (APME) announced plans to pursue a merger of the two national editors’ organizations.

“The proposed merger of ASNE and APME represents an opportunity to create a new and vibrant organization with an even stronger voice to defend press freedom, promote diversity and inclusiveness in content and coverage and build the next generation of journalism leaders,” said ASNE President Alfredo Carbajal.
