Chacon Leaving Globe

With this short announcement, Richard Chacon informed readers he is leaving both his post as Globe ombudsman and the paper itself, for what he called "a new professional challenge." Chacon spent a little less than a year in the job, and it's not clear that he was a good fit for a difficult position that involves constantly dealing with reader wrath and sometimes incurring your colleagues' wrath. But it's too early to know whether that had anything to do with his leaving. (Media Log is on deadline for a story today, but we have a call into Chacon for further details.)

In the meantime, finding a new ombudsman is never an easy task, assuming the Globe wants to continue its long tradition of having one.
