‘Boston Globe’ Does the Newsroom Shuffle After Editorial Departures

By: E&P Staff

The Boston Globe has announced several appointments on its newsroom staff following the imminent departures of three longtime employees.

Departing the Globe newsroom are Executive Editor Helen Donovan, Deputy Managing Editor Michael Larkin, and business columnist Steve Bailey — all of whom have been with the paper since the 1970s.

Caleb Solomon has been named the Globe?s managing editor/news, succeeding Donovan. Previously he served as Page One editor, and will retain those duties. Donovan has been with the Globe for 32 years, and has served as executive editor since 1993.

Ellen Clegg, who most recently was deputy managing editor of the Sunday edition, succeeds Larkin as deputy managing editor in charge of news operations.

Taking over Clegg?s sunday duties is Mark Morrow, a deputy managing editor who oversees the Globe?s special projects and Spotlight Team. He will continue to oversee the newsroom?s projects and the investigative group.

Bailey, who has spent three decades at the Globe, is relocating to Europe to join Bloomberg News as a senior enterprise editor in London.

In February, Publisher Steve Ainsley said the Globe is looking to cut 60 positions through voluntary buyouts as part of a company-wide cost-cutting effort.
