Shrinky Local Tabloid Now Slightly Less Shrinky

November 7, 2018

After months of neutron bombing its sports department (see coverage from our kissin’ cousins at One Daily Town), the Boston Herald has actually hired a sports columnist to fill the void in its Toy Department.

Tom Keegan joins Herald

Award-winning columnist latest addition to sports staff

Boston has a new voice for sports.

Tom Keegan, an award-winning columnist, editor and radio personality who has plied his trade in the Los Angeles, Chicago and New York markets, will join the Herald as sports columnist covering Boston’s championship-winning teams beginning Monday.

“Toughest teams on the planet, liveliest sportswriters and most colorful sports nuts in the country. Cool city,” Keegan said about Boston — to which he has family ties. “My trips to Fenway Park felt more like I was covering an event than a game. Wild intensity. Good times. Can’t wait to resume writing for the back page.”

 

Welcome to Boston, Tom.

Hope you don’t get folded, spindled, or mutilated by your Digital Fist – sorry, First – Media handlers.

Boston Herald Diaspora Landing at Boston Globe

June 1, 2018

As our kissin’ cousins at One-Daily Town noted in their Hexit Watch™ a couple of months ago, it didn’t take long for former Boston Herald editorial page editor Rachelle Cohen to get back in the newspaper business after exiting the shrinky local tabloid.

Two months ago her Globe op-ed Befriending the Stranger featured this tag.

Last month her op-ed on the Democrats’ Pelosi problem had a slimmer tag.

Today, Cohen’s op-ed about John Kasich has her on (editorial) board at the Globe.

Good move by the Globe adding a smart, tough, reasonable voice to their opinion pages.

Another Herald escapee – Matt Stout – seems to have gone in a reverse direction. Stout jumped to the Globe in early March, starting off with this web piece.

 

 

So there he’s Globe Staff. But since then, he’s been Globe Correspondent.

 

 

So the headscratching staff went to – where else? – Twitter for the tiebreaker.

We’ll just leave it at that.
