BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Megan Trimble, a journalist with experience covering public safety and breaking news, has been hired by The Associated Press to help cover the 2016 legislative session in Louisiana.

The 11-week assignment was announced Wednesday by Interim South Editor Ravi Nessman and Deep South Editor Jim Van Anglen.

Trimble, who starts March 28, will work alongside reporter Melinda Deslatte.

The 24-year-old most recently worked as a breaking news reporter for The Patriot-News/PennLive.com in Harrisburg, Pa. In the last year, she covered crime, courts and local news, including a grand jury probe into local Children and Youth Services and Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia.

Other highlights of her work include coverage of a mayor charged with hundreds of racketeering counts and a hazing case at a local college.

Trimble earned an undergraduate degree in English writing and communication from the University of Pittsburgh.
