BRAIN DRAIN
Two to depart Globe
BY DAN KENNEDY

Two Boston Globe staff members are moving on to the national stage.

Alex Star, who has edited the Sunday Ideas section since its inception in the summer of 2002, will leave by the end of the year to become senior editor at the New York Times Magazine. (Both the Globe and the Times are owned by the New York Times Company.)

"I don’t expect it to change dramatically," Star, the former editor of Lingua Franca, said by e-mail this week in response to a question about what his departure would mean for Ideas.

In an internal Times memo — posted Tuesday on Jim Romenesko’s media-news site at Poynter.org — Times Magazine editor Gerald Marzorati said Star would function as the magazine’s number-three editor, behind him and deputy editor Katherine Bouton.

Wrote Marzorati of Star: "He is thoughtful, genial and as the Ideas section of the Globe attests inventive, and we cannot wait until his skills and temperament ease their way into our decision-making and our pages."

Also leaving the Globe is staff reporter Ellen Barry, who has covered stories ranging from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to the mental-health beat with flair and distinction.

Barry will work for the Los Angeles Times as the Atlanta-bureau chief. She was a staff writer for the Boston Phoenix in the mid 1990s, and before that was a reporter for the Moscow Times.

In 2002, Barry was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for her coverage of a group of Sudanese boys who moved to the United States.
