From our Are You Kidding? desk
As the headscratching staff has been asking for two weeks now, why has the Boston Globe failed to run an obituary for Boston Herald reporter/columnist Wayne Woodlief, who died at the age of 82 on August 12?
Wayne Woodlief, NF ’66 and former political columnist, dies at 82
Longtime Boston Herald political columnist and 1966 Nieman Fellow Wayne Woodlief died on Aug. 12 at the age of 82.
A graduate of Duke University, he began his journalism career as a sportswriter and later a city politics reporter for the Ledger-Star in Norfolk, Va. He then moved on to join The Virginian-Pilot/Ledger-Star’s Washington, D.C., bureau.
In 1974, Woodlief became the Boston Herald-American’s Washington correspondent. He was promoted as the newspaper’s political editor in 1977 but missed the beat and returned to reporting.
But still nothing from the Globe.
Bad form, Globeniks. Bad form.
