This isn’t goodbye.
In fact, it’s sort of like saying hello all over again.
I have recently made a move, without actually moving.
Confusing, I know.
I will still be employed at the Daily Globe, but I have relinquished my role as the sports editor.
So I’m not going anywhere — except to a different desk about 15 feet away — but my role will be changing.
I have accepted the position as the community content coordinator at the Globe. Mainly,
I’ll be dealing with the website and other facets on the online community.
It was a tough decision to leave the sports desk. The editor’s chair is one I’ve called home for the past three years. The year before, I was a sports reporter. This is all I’ve known in my professional life.
But it’s time for a new challenge.
I have enjoyed my time at the sports desk more than I can explain. I have loved every minute of covering games, getting to know coaches, players and fans and just immersing myself into the world of sports.
And that won’t change.
I’ll still be at sporting events. I’m hoping the new sports editor will allow me to cover the occasional game or match.
Even if I’m not at as many events as I once was, my love and passion for sports won’t change.
I’ll still read the sports page of the Globe, but now I won’t have seen it all the night before.
While there isn’t enough room on this page to thank everyone who deserves it, I would like to say a special word to all the coaches and players who have made this job so enjoyable. It’s those people who I will miss working with on a daily basis.
However, I’m equally as excited to look to the future.
I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t know everything about the web or how online works. But I’m eager to learn.
Which is why I’m open to suggestions.
