MATT STORIN IS NAMED EDITOR OF THE BOSTON GLOBE; JACK DRISCOLL

 BOSTON, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Three top editorial promotions at The Boston Globe were announced today by Publisher William O. Taylor. The appointments are effective March 1.
 -- Matthew V. Storin, executive editor, will become editor of the Globe.
 -- John S. Driscoll, editor, will become a vice president of the Globe.
 -- Helen W. Donovan, managing editor, will become executive editor
 Storin, 50 first came to the Globe in 1969, serving as White House correspondent in the paper's Washington Bureau. Over the next 15 years, he held a number of key reporting and administrative positions at the paper, including city editor, Asian correspondent, national editor and managing editor.
 In 1985, he left the Globe to become Deputy Managing Editor of U.S. News and World Report, and during the next seven years, held a variety of high-ranking administrative positions in the newspaper and magazine fields.
 Before rejoining the Globe staff last August, he served as Editor of the Maine Times, Editor and Senior Vice President of the Chicago Sun Times and Executive Editor of the New York Daily News.
 "Matt Storin has seen this business inside and out from an extraordinary number of vantage points," Taylor said in making the announcement. "The Globe is very fortunate to have a person with his talents and range of experience ready to take over the editorship of the paper as Jack Driscoll moves on to other important responsibilities."
 Storin spoke of both the opportunity and the challenge of his new position.
 "This is one of the few places left where, above all else, the publisher pushes you to do quality journalism. To be editor of a newspaper like that is any journalist's dream come true.
 "On the other hand, these are challenging times for newspapers, and we've got to keep the Globe a vital part of our readers' lives every day. We've all got a lot of work to do, but the talent of our editors and writers has never been greater."
 Driscoll, 58, has been editor of the Globe since 1987. As a vice president, he will represent the Globe in a newly-formed consortium of communications companies at the MIT Media Lab. The five-year project is called "News in the Future," and research will be aimed at discovering ways to individualize news and advertising to the consumer in a timely and convenient manner. He will also serve as executive secretary of a new Globe 2000 Committee on future strategic options.
 "Jack Driscoll has had a steady hand on the helm of this paper as editor for the past seven years," Taylor noted. "His experience and leadership will be of great value to the company in his new role as we move toward a modern information company in the years to come."
 Driscoll has a long and distinguished career at the Globe. He was executive editor from 1982-1987 and managing editor for several years before that. He has supervised or reported in several prize-winning efforts, including five Pulitzer Prizes, the AP Managing Editor's Public Service Award, Sigma Delta Chi, and the George Polk, Sidney Hillman and Sevellon Brown Awards, New England's top honors.
 Donovan, 45, has been managing editor since April 1991, responsible for the news coverage and content of the daily and Sunday Globe. She had been Sunday Managing Editor since Jan. 1, 1990.
 Donovan joined the paper in 1976 and has been editor of the letters to the editor section, editor of the op-ed page, and assistant managing editor for national news. She was named deputy managing editor in January 1986.
 She has also supervised the Globe's national and foreign reporting and the Washington bureau and has directed the paper's political coverage including the 1988 presidential election.
