Snow Bird

Here's a stunner. Chris Snow -- the Globe's 24-year-old Sox beat man who landed one of sports journalism's best jobs at a very tender age -- is leaving this summer to take a job as director of hockey operations for the Minnesota Wild. (Snow was profiled last year in the Phoenix as one of the young upcoming stars of the media biz.)

I'm going to refrain at this point from assuming that this job switch is just one more vote of no confidence in the future of the news industry. For one thing, Snow used to cover hockey for the Minneapolis Star Tribune and for another, it seems like a pretty major coup to become a top NHL executive in your early 20's. We have a call into sports editor Joe Sullivan to see if he has a successor in mind.
