Shira T. Center

Politics/Assistant Metro Editor, Boston Globe


United States

Shira has 15 years of experience in political coverage across all levels of government. She started out in Washington, D.C., where she covered Congress and congressional campaigns for several inside-the-beltway publications. At the Globe, she has served as the publication’s local political editor in charge of the newsroom’s State House, City Hall and New Hampshire primary teams. As an editor, she’s worked with a range of reporting experience levels, from college interns to seasoned columnists and bureau chiefs who have been in the business for several decades. And while Shira views politics stories as the mainstay of any news operation, she is passionate about bringing this integral coverage to multiple platforms, such as live events, in search of revenue and readers.
