ATLANTA (AP) - Bill Hendrick, a journalist with experience covering Georgia politics and government, has been hired by The Associated Press to help cover the 2015 legislative session.

The 15-week assignment was announced Wednesday by South Region Editor Lisa Marie Pane and Deep South Editor Jim Van Anglen.

Hendrick, who starts Feb. 2, will work alongside reporter Kathleen Foody.

The 67-year-old served in various capacities during a nearly three-decade career at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, including assistant national editor, assistant business editor, senior business reporter, and features writer. He has covered several legislative sessions and will bring that deep knowledge of Georgia to his new role with the AP.

Prior to joining the newspaper, Hendrick worked as a reporter and editor in the 1970s for the AP in several locations, including Kentucky and New York.

Hendrick holds an undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Georgia.
