LOTH IS DEPUTY EDITOR; TURNER BECOMES CHIEF EDITORIAL WRITER

 BOSTON, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boston Globe Publisher William O. Taylor has announced two top appointments to the Globe's editorial pages, both effective Jan. 1. Both staff will report to incoming Editorial Page Editor, H.D.S. Greenway, who assumes that position on the same date, succeeding Loretta McLaughlin.
 McLaughlin, who retires at the end of the year, will continue to write a health column for the paper.
 Renee Loth was named deputy editor of the editorial page, and Robert L. Turner was appointed chief editorial writer.
 Loth, 40, is currently political editor. She has supervised coverage of the recent Boston Mayoral race, as well as State House and New England Congressional stories.
 Loth joined the Globe eight years ago, first as a writer for the Sunday magazine and then as a member of the Globe's State House Bureau. She covered the 1992 presidential campaign, inaugurating the "adwatch" column that analyzes TV political ads.
 Prior to coming to the Globe she was an associate editor at New England Monthly magazine and a political reporter for the Boston Phoenix. Her first job in journalism was as editor of the biweekly East Boston Community News, a neighborhood advocacy newspaper.
 Loth has a journalism degree from Boston University's School of Public Communication. She is a frequent commentator on local and national public affairs programs including the MacNeil-Lehrer News Hour, National Public Radio, WBZ and WLVI-TV.
 Turner, 50, has been a political columnist since 1979. He joined the Globe in 1965 and has served as a general assignment reporter, assistant city editor, state political reporter, and State House bureau chief.
 A graduate of Columbia College with a B.A. and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government with an M.P.A., Turner has written two books: "I'll Never Lie to You; Jimmy Carter in His Own Words," published by Ballantine in 1976, and "Dukakis, An American Odyssey," written with Globe colleague Charles Kenney and published by Houghton Mifflin in 1988.
 He has twice been a study group leader at The Institute of Politics at Harvard and is a member of the Bench-Bar-News Committee of the Massachusetts Bar Association. He was chairman of that committee in 1989-90.
