At The Globe, Janice has been in charge of arts, books, food, features, celebrity news and other cultural coverage. In addition to her duties as a department head, Janice also has been leading newsroom efforts to expand the reach of The Globe’s journalism through book, film and television deals, podcasts and live events.
She has had a long, distinguished career in features editing. She was a reporter and arts and entertainment editor at the Los Angeles Times and the executive producer of the Boston site of MSN/Sidewalk.com. She got her start in features at the Providence Journal-Bulletin, where she was a lifestyle editor, a reporter, a critic and the arts and entertainment editor during her three-year tenure.
Janice starts June 3. She will work in Boston, where two members of the team are also based, while her daughter finishes high school. But she will be a frequent presence in the newsroom.
We want to thank Amy Hitt, an assignment editor in Features, for her role leading fine arts coverage since Christine Ledbetter retired in November.
