Pindell exits Globe--updated!

Congrats to James Pindell, currently author of the Globe's Primary Source blog, who'll take over as national managing editor of effective January 12. His impending departure is a loss for Morrissey Blvd. and a real coup for the Observer Media Group.

UPDATE: Dan Kennedy casts Pindell as an exemplar of how to get ahead in journalism today. "As I tell my students," Dan writes, "this may be a lousy time to pursue a traditional career path in journalism, but it's a great time if you're willing to be entrepreneurial and embrace new ways of doing things."

Also, for those Globe-watchers keeping score at home, Pindell says that his new job came to him, not the other way around. "This was a job I didn't seek, but really couldn't turn down," he says via email. "This has nothing to do with the Globe. And I am thrilled to be covering the primary with them.
