AP executive editor to speak at Kansas Editors Day at KU on Sept. 10

LAWRENCE -- The William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Kansas will host Kansas Editors Day on Sept. 10. The program will begin at 1:30 p.m. in Alderson Auditorium at the Kansas Union. Kathleen Carroll, executive editor and senior vice president of the Associated Press, will be the featured speaker.

The program precedes the Kansas-Appalachian State football game at 6 p.m in Memorial Stadium. KU Chancellor Robert Hemenway will host a pre-game buffet at 3:30 p.m. at his residence, 1532 Lilac Lane.

Carroll was named executive editor of the AP in 2002 and senior vice president in 2003. She returned to the AP after six years with Knight Ridder where she was a bureau chief supervising Knight Ridder's Washington coverage and its overseas reporting. As the AP's executive editor, Carroll helps the news agency face the challenges of helping newspapers increase readership, as well as providing up-to-date reports for broadcast and new media.
