The Associated Press has appointed Peter Prengaman as climate and environmental editor, leading the company’s expanding coverage of climate issues as part of a global initiative.

In his new role, he will also build out a team of journalists globally, and work with AP colleagues to build on AP’s strong climate and environmental coverage, most recently from the international climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland.

Prengaman’s position is one of two funded by the Rockefeller Foundation as part of the launch of AP’s climate initiative, a partnership with philanthropic foundations to enhance global understanding of climate change and its impact.

Currently, Prengaman is news director for the western U.S. He has been with the AP for nearly 20 years, taking on various roles, including serving as a reporter in Oregon and later becoming a Caribbean correspondent.

He has worked in Los Angeles, Atlanta and was news editor for Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay.
