The Lowell Sun reports Herald Editor in Chief Joe Sciacca is now regional editor in chief for a bunch of papers Digital First Media has picked up in New England and upstate New York. His purview will continue to include the shrunken Herald.
Meanwhile, Politico reports the Globe plans to restock its Washington bureau - and iincrease its numbers by two or three new reporters. The Globe has to keep hiring reporters to work in Washington because the Washington Post, under Editor Marty Baron (late of the Globe, natch), keeps hiring away Globies.
H/t Dan Kennedy for the Sciacca news.
