Shira T. Center

General Manager for Newsroom Initiatives, Boston Globe


United States

Shira serves as general manager of newsroom initiatives — a new role that marries her love of the Boston Globe’s journalism with her creative drive to find new revenue streams for and around it. Prior to this, she was a political editor and reporter for 15 years, during which she covered all levels of government. She started her career in Washington, D.C., where she was a reporter on Congress and congressional campaigns for inside-the-beltway publications including Roll Call and Politico. 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 coverage. Her proudest professional accomplishment is working with a group of women at the Globe to change the company’s paid family leave policy.
