I believe today (March 9) is the date Ambassador John Feeley is leaving his post as Ambassador to the Republic of Panama.

His replacement?

I was told today that former Ambassador John Feeley now has employment with Univision.

There are many, many ambassadorial positions going unfilled even though quality people have been nominated. Panama is way down the list of priorities from Germany so it may be years before we get a new ambassador. Inquiring minds can maybe google and find out why there is such a roadblock.

There are roughly 65 U.S. Ambassadorial positions which are listed as VACANT.  About 20 of those have nominees.

A Google search, as Penny suggests, also yielded the following:
