Latest in the never-ending Boston Herald exodus
If there’s one desk at the shrinky local tabloid that’s taken an especial beating from the paper’s Digital Fist – sorry, First – Media owners, it’s been the sports department. Which is crazy, right? The Herald sports pages were one of the few reasons to pick up the paper at all.
