Change at the Top For VOA

A former Time magazine correspondent named director of the Voice of America. The Broadcasting Board of Governors named David Jackson to replace Robert Reilly, who resigned. Jackson's 23-year career with Time included stints as a correspondent in Cairo, Hong Kong and Seoul. Last year, he left Time to become editor-in-chief of the Defense Department's principal Web site devoted to news about the war on terrorism.
Reilly said he resigned as VOA director to work with the Bush Administration more directly in the war against international terrorism. He plans to remain with VOA during the transition.
