Currently deputy business editor, DiNardo, 51, will replace
John Yemma, who is leaving the newspaper to become editor of the
Christian Science Monitor. DiNardo will play a key role at the Globe,
which like other papers is grappling with major shifts as more people
get their news online.
In his current job, DiNardo "has helped make his department a
multimedia model within our newsroom," Baron said in a staff memo.
"One need only look at the latest Globe 100 magazine, which he
edited, to see how we can marshal all our talents to produce
journalism that sparkles in print, video, and interactive graphics,"
Baron wrote. "Day after day, Bennie and the Business section have
embraced the Web's possibilities."
In addition to overseeing editorial operations of the Boston.com
website, DiNardo will help shape the newsroom's digital strategy, such
as developing more audio and video content.
A Leominster native, DiNardo has worked at the Globe 16 years and
held his current job since 1999, responsible for day-to-day management
of the Business section. Previously, he was an assistant editor at the
Globe Magazine and a copy editor. Before the Globe, DiNardo had been
editor of the Boston Business Journal.
A graduate of Cornell University, DiNardo received a master's
degree from Yale Law School. DiNardo will begin his new post at the
end of the month.
