Is it 'promoted as' or 'promoted to' or either?
Indian English invariably has 'promoted as' where Anglophones use 'promoted to'.
Indians who favor British English consider 'promoted as' to be an Indianism or
an error. Yet, I find 'promoted as' in a publication outside India:
<<Born in in Ohio in 1940, Roger Ailes graduated from Ohio University and began
his career as a property assistant for NBC News’ Cleveland affiliate. While
there, Ailes became a producer and was promoted as an executive producer of
the affiliate’s “The Mike Douglas Show.”>>
