Massachusetts gets another Kennedy

Ann Kennedy, the Nation & World editor at The News & Observer, is leaving North Carolina for Massachusetts. She’ll be managing editor at Boston Now, a free daily newspaper and Web site that incorporates both traditional and citizen journalism.

Kennedy’s nearly eight years at the N&O, she was a copy editor, sports copy editor and assistant wire editor. She was my successor as Nation & World editor, starting in July 2005.

Best of luck to Ann in Boston.
