Wesley Morris Leaves Boston Globe for Grantland

Wesley Morris, the Pulitzer-winning veteran of The Boston Globe, is leaving the paper for a full-time spot with Grantland. Morris has been with the Globe for the past 10 years. He had been a contributor to Grantland since 2011.

According to a memo obtained by Jim Romenesko, at Grantland he will continue to cover film and other pop culture subjects.

“For a moment, forget about the writing,” wrote Doug Most, the Globe’s feature editor, in the note to staffers. “The superb, brilliant writing. Wesley’s presence in our world has been about so much more than just his wonderful film criticism and insightful takes on pop culture. Wesley is a true friend to so many of us.”
