Peter Canellos Joins Politico

Peter Canellos, a 26-year veteran of The Boston Globe, has been named Politico’s new executive editor. Canellos announced he was leaving the Globe last month.

Canellos was named the Globe’s editorial page editor in 2009. Prior to that he served as the paper’s Washington bureau chief.

In a memo announcing the move, Politico’s editor Susan Glasser wrote, “Peter’s had a long record of accomplishment at the Globe – and you should look at all the wonderful things his many hires over the years had to say about Peter when he recently announced he was leaving as the paper’s editorial editor.”
