Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
The Boston Sunday Globe will launch a redesigned and re-envisioned editorial/op-ed section on March 9, adding two additional pages of space for New England writers to address issues of local, national, and global importance.
The new op-ed pages, which will follow the award-winning Ideas section in the Sunday paper, will give prominence to longer-form opinion, and feature extensive use of photos, charts, and graphic illustrations. The content will be available in print and online on BostonGlobe.com/opinion as well as on Twitter at twitter.com/globeopinion.
Kathleen Kingsbury has been hired as the Sunday Op-Ed Editor. She previously served as a member of the Globe’s Editorial Board, and was a contributor at Time, Reuters, and The Daily Beast, covering healthcare, business, and education. Before that, she was a staff writer and Hong Kong-based Asia correspondent at Time.
She can now be reached at katie.kingsbury(at)globe(dot)com and on Twitter at twitter.com/katiekings.
"The goal of the expanded section is to complement the thought leaders who already populate our Sunday pages by showcasing new, sharp voices and bold ideas that push boundaries and get readers talking,” Kingsbury said. “And we're especially lucky to be doing this in Boston, with its unparalleled academic community and innovation economies we can tap into for that new talent."
The redesign is meant to be fresh and high-impact, Kingsbury said, with splashes of color, and highlights a rotating lineup of regular columnists each Sunday, including Joan Vennochi, Jeff Jacoby, and Tom Keane. In addition, Stephen Kinzer, a veteran foreign correspondent for the New York Times and The Boston Globe and who has written eight books on world affairs, will write twice a month on foreign policy for the section.
"This will give us even more opportunities to make the voices of New England heard around the region and the country," said editorial page director Peter Canellos.
