WASHINGTON (AP) - The Associated Press has named Vaughn Morrison as its new head of US video production.

Morrison, who will be based in Washington, will focus on domestic video output for Associated Press Television News, AP Video-US and online.

Morrison spent a decade at CNN in Atlanta as a network supervising producer and also as a supervising broadcast producer for CNN & Time. He then joined Fox Cable Networks as news director for Fox Sports Net South before becoming vice president of programming and production for TV Guide on Demand. There, he built and managed the first multiplatform broadband, mobile and video on demand network made up entirely of original production.

Morrison also worked as vice president of production for JibJab Media in Venice, California, and worked as a consultant building online and mobile businesses.

He won a regional news Emmy for outstanding sports newscast, a news and documentary Emmy for outstanding investigative journalism and a news and documentary Emmy for outstanding coverage of a single breaking news story.

Morrison has a master's degree in business administration from Georgia State University and a Bachelor of Science in journalism from the University of Colorado.
