Today is your chance to vote on Jackie MacMullan of the (for now) Boston Globe.
This is another vote while you can, as MacMullan is among the latest round of buyouts at the Globe. It is also rumored that ESPN has been courting her aggressively – but what her role would be is unknown, as she was said to be agreeable to the Globe buyout because she wanted to spend more time with her family.
MacMullan is a UNH graduate, and played four years of basketball at the school. She joined the Globe in 1982, and remained there until 1995 as a general sports reporter with a focus on the Celtics and the NBA. She moved on to Sports Illustrated from 1996 to 2000 before rejoining the Globe as a sports columnist.
She is very visible on various NESN and ESPN programs. She is author of several books, such as Bird Watching : On Playing and Coaching the Game I Love with Larry Bird, Geno: In Pursuit of Perfection with Geno Auriemma and Magic & Bird: Basketball’s Awed Couple.
