Best of Boston

1999 Best Columnist, Business

Steve Bailey, Boston Globe

Picking up where his predecessor, the estimable Joan Vennochi, left off, Bailey hasn’t missed a beat covering the business-politics beat. On the contrary, whether he’s writing about the Fleet-Bank-Boston merger, the Fenway deal, or the backroom maneuvering to bring the Patriots back to town, Bailey knows the game, he knows the players, and he knows the hidden agendas that make Boston such a grand place.
