Please join me in thanking Newton TAB reporter Jim Morrison, who is leaving the paper June 26 for a position at Banker & Tradesman. A journalist of remarkable patience and good humor, he will be missed around here.
Along with all the usual municipal coverage, our rough and tumble politics and feature stories, generations of Newton TAB reporters also have the unique chance to cover the world famous Boston Marathon as it passes along Heartbreak Hill. Most of us take that for granted around here, but really, it is a unique assignment that reporters who’ve moved on tell me they remember fondly for years.
In Jim’s case, his first day on the job was April 15, 2013, hardly a typical first week in the office.
