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.
