John Allen joins Boston Globe
John Allen, one of the most important reporters on the Vatican and Catholicism, is joining the Boston Globe from National Catholic Reporter, the Globe says in a release. Globe Editor Brian McGrory says Allen will have “several roles of prominence." McGrory continues:
He will be a correspondent first and foremost. He will be an analyst on all things Catholic. He will also help us explore the very real possibility of launching a free-standing publication devoted to Catholicism, drawing in other correspondents and leading voices from near and far.
