WASHINGTON (AP) _ Nancy Roberts Trott, news editor in the Seattle bureau since 1999, has been named regional news editor for The Associated Press in Washington.
Her appointment was announced Friday by Washington Chief of Bureau Sandy Johnson. Trott will supervise 16 regional reporters who cover 30 states.
Trott joined the AP in Concord, N.H., in 1991. She later worked in AP bureaus in Providence, R.I., and Albany, N.Y., before returning to Concord in 1993 as a supervising editor.
She left Concord three years later to move to the Pacific Northwest, where she worked briefly for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer before moving to ABC News’ online operation in 1997.
Trott, 31, was born in New Britain, Conn., and graduated from the University of New Hampshire.
