A little more than a week ago, I told the Phoenix that I was leaving to take an associate producer job at WGBH’s Greater Boston, where I’ve been a frequent guest panelist. The news has now been announced at the paper, so I wanted to mention it here as well, even though I’ll be writing through March 10. While I’m excited about heading to WGBH and taking part in the big changes unfolding over there, leaving the Phoenix is bittersweet. I’ve been here for six and a half years, and have been fortunate enough to do two jobs--writing the Talking Politics and Don’t Quote Me columns and their accompanying blogs--that I truly believe are among the very best in Boston journalism. I’ll be saying a more formal farewell next month. In the interim, though, thanks to all of you who’ve read this blog and my columns in the old-school, hard-copy Phoenix. I’ve been grateful for your attention, insights and passion--even when that passion takes the form of vigorous disagreement.
And finally, I’m not gone yet--so please keep the tips and comments coming.
