By

This has got to sting Rupert Murdoch, who invented the modern Boston Herald: Kevin Convey, the editor of Beantown's punchy tabloid, has been hired to replace outgoing Daily News editor Martin Dunn and face off against Murdoch's New York Post in our city's loving tabloid death match. Convey started at the Herald in 1981 when Murdoch rebranded it, and grew up there as a reporter, editor, and manager. [Poynter Online/Romenesko]
