Herald names two managing editors

Congratulations to my “Beat the Press” colleague Joe Sciacca, who’s been named managing editor for content at the Boston Herald. (And to Jim Potter, the Herald’s newly promoted managing editor for production, whom I don’t know.)

Sciacca has been a staunch advocate of a Web-first strategy for the Herald, which is important given that the paper is printed in Chicopee and has unusually early deadlines.

And as Sciacca himself has pointed out, is an example of a that is quite different from the print edition in look, feel and, to some extent, content — a separate-path strategy that other newspaper executives would be wise to pursue.

Definitely a good move by Herald editor Kevin Convey.

    Congrats to Joe. Without revealing anyone’s age (cough, sputter!) I remember when he was covering Wilmington selectmen’s meetings for the Lowell Sun.
