Christine Chinlund has been named deputy managing editor for news operations at The Boston Globe.
Chinlund, 57, has served in a variety of reporting and editing capacities for more than 25 years, including national editor, foreign editor, and most recently as deputy health and science editor. She also served as the paper’s ombudsman. In her new role, she will oversee the newsroom at night.
“With her remarkable experience, steady demeanor, and demonstrated good judgment, she is a perfect fit for this enormously important job,” Globe editor Martin Baron said in a note to the newsroom yesterday.
Chinlund succeeds Ellen Clegg, who is leaving to become managing editor for communications platforms at the Broad Institute in Cambridge.
