Elbert Tucker joins APME board

Elbert Tucker, news director of WBNS-10TV in Columbus, Ohio, has joined the Associated Press Media Editors' board of directors.

He'll fill the broadcast seat vacated by Jim Farley.

Tucker has 27 years in television broadcasting and previously worked in Cincinnati, Birmingham, Ala., and Chattanooga, Tenn.

Tucker will head the APME Broadcast Committee and help judge the new innovation awards for radio and TV.

He'll serve a three-year term. Two more broadcast members will be elected over the next two years, as APME expands to include AP broadcast news leaders, college journalism educators and student editors.

Congratulations to Elbert.
