OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Adam Kealoha Causey, an Associated Press newsman in Phoenix, has been named administrative correspondent in Oklahoma City.
The appointment was announced Monday by Texas-Arkansas-Oklahoma Editor Maud Beelman.
Causey, 34, joined the AP in Phoenix in 2015 from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, where he was a reporter and an assistant city editor for breaking news and crime coverage. He's also worked as a projects reporter for the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville and as a reporter for The Times in Shreveport. He is a graduate of Louisiana State University's Manship School of Mass Communication.
"This new position reflects AP's commitment to original reporting and recognizes that Oklahoma is a major source of big, breaking news as well as investigative stories of national and global interest," Beelman said.
In his new role, Causey will oversee AP reporters in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. He also will work with AP reporters, photographers and editors throughout the region to break news on the biggest stories of the day, as well as to produce deeply reported enterprise.
