Rodman to the Globe

MY colleagues at the Phoenix are reporting that the Globe has poached the Herald's Sarah Rodman to replace departed pop culture/music writer Renee Graham (one of the paper's biggest losses in last year's wave of buyouts) and rock writer Steve Morse. (The commentary on the wisdom of that pick reflects the view of On the Download, not necessarily that of Media Log.)

Without a doubt, Morse was one of the nicest people I've met in this business. Having said that his recent rock critic memoirs that appeared in the Globe's Sunday magazine were too Morse-ian -- that is to say, too much sweetness and not enough light. Whatever the merits of the pick, the Globe's continuing ability to lure away Herald writers -- as in the case of Rodman and Brian Ballou -- must be particularly grating for the already stripped-down tabloid.
