Mike Reiss Leaves, Joins ESPN

Mike Reiss, the beat Patriots blogger for for the past four years, will now officially be joining the new when the site launches Monday. He officially said goodbye Friday on his Reiss’s Pieces blog on

As the transition is made from “Reiss’s Pieces” to “Extra Points”, this is one final goodbye from me. After four-plus rewarding years at the Boston Globe and, I’ll be moving on to a new challenge on Monday.

Thank you to all the readers who made blogging here the favorite part of my job, along with the weekly mailbag.

One of the hardest parts of saying goodbye is leaving great people. There are many of them at the Globe, starting with the person I worked most closely with, Christopher Gasper. Behind the scenes, there are remarkable people on the Globe copy desk who do unsung work. The staff is terrific and it was great working for Globe sports editor Joe Sullivan, who along with his trusty assistants has had to fight battles those before him haven’t.

This will be my last post at this address, but I know there are many more updates to come here.

Thanks for sharing this great experience with me.

We wish the best to Mike Reiss. As for ESPNBoston…good luck entering this well-covered Boston market. Since it’s ESPN behind it, they can definitely succeed here. It will be interesting to see…
