AP Coverage Plans for London 2012 Summer Olympics
The Associated Press (AP) will use a wide array of digital tools and innovations to display its reporting strengths across all platforms at the 2012 Summer Games in London.
AP Mobile has expanded its offerings to provide a complete Summer Games section, including medal counts, athlete profiles, results, stories, photos and video. AP will capture Olympic news for the first time in high-definition video, now delivered to AP broadcast customers following a phased rollout begun eight months ago.
AP will staff the games with 91 text reporters and editors, 85 photographers and photo editors, 18 video journalists and three radio reporters, plus 21 technology staffers responsible for ensuring all of AP’s content reaches its customers.
