After losing Adam Kilgore to the Washington Post, the Boston Globe didn’t waste much time in bringing on a new writer for the Patriots beat.
Shalise Manza Young, who has been the Patriots beat writer for the Providence Journal for the last few seasons, and has been at the paper for 15 years, has been hired to take Kilgore’s place.
Young announced the news on both Twitter and Facebook this afternoon. On the latter, she posted:
I am thrilled to announce that after 15 years I will be leaving the Journal and joining the Boston Globe as their Patriots beat writer…
Good hire for the Globe, and another blow to the ProJo, which has lost Tom E. Curran, Sean McAdam, Art Martone, Joe McDonald to competitors, and others to layoffs and buyouts in the last few years, and now Young to the Globe.
Young has had a pretty good offseason, being the first to report that Dean Pees would not be returning as defensive coordinator and that tight ends coach Shane Waldron would also not be returning in 2010.
