Well the new Living section (which replaces the late, unlamented G section) debuted in the Boston Globe today, and here’s how the paper’s press release touted the launch:
The Boston Globe Launches New Living/Arts Section with Daily Themes and Fresh Content
Monday through Saturday section to feature everything from food to technology to parenting tips; debuts January 12
Boston (January 12, 2015) – The Boston Globe launched today the new Living/Arts section – a daily broadsheet section focusing on arts, culture, entertainment, and lifestyle. Previously the “g” section, Living/Arts is now bigger and bolder with a fresh design and collection of new compelling features and columns.
The Living/Arts section will include the Globe’s award-winning coverage of arts and culture, as well as family, events, books, style, restaurants, and nightlife, among other new features, in an engaging and eye-catching package.
The new section will revolve around daily themes, Monday through Saturday . . .
There’s no mention in the press release of the comics pages, mainly because they’ve moved to the back of the Metro section. And, to all appearances, they’ve moved down in size as well.
It’s hard to tell from the Globe’s ePaper edition, but here’s an individual matchup.
The hardreading staff recycles so religiously, we don’t have an old G section lying around the Global Worldwide Headquarters for a paper comparison, but we’re searching elsewhere in hopes of putting an old-fashioned ruler to the strips.
Meanwhile, if any of you splendid readers can enlighten us further, please do.
