Boston Globe veteran Jason Tuohey is leaving the paper on Dec. 22. Currently managing editor for audience and new platforms, Tuohey has been the Globe’s go-to person on the digital side for quite a few years.
“I know this news will hit some of you hard, because I have seen first-hand how many people seek out his guidance and support, both personally and professionally,” Globe editor Nancy Barnes said in an email message to her staff, a copy of which was forwarded to me by a trusted source. “Brian McGrory [Barnes’ predecessor as editor] told me before I got here that he was the best in the business, and he has been invaluable to me upon joining the newsroom earlier this year.”
No word in Barnes’ memo about what is next for Tuohey, but best of luck to him.
