Welcome, everyone, to the Page One Blog, where we’re going to provide some information and details on each day’s Boston Herald cover.bh-2013-12-05-E-A001

The emphasis on Page One is solely only-in-the-Herald content, be it stories broken by our reporters, exclusive interviews, the passionate opinions of our news, political and sports columnists, or simply a compelling staff photograph. Obviously, there’s excellent material to work with!
