Peter Schworm is an editor on the Globe's express desk, handling a mix of breaking news, enterprise stories, and features. He works with reporters on developing stories throughout the day, as well as longer-range pieces, such as a recent front-page profile of a survivor of a mass shooting in Lewiston, Maine. He enjoys the fast pace of journalism, the diversity of stories, and the challenge of telling stories in the fairest, most compelling way possible.
He came to the desk last year after being a metro editor for six years, working with a team of reporters across a range of coverage areas: the court system, education, the pandemic, transportation, and many more, from the deadly Covid-19 outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers' Home to the growing number of rescues required in the White Mountains.
He became an editor after many years as a general assignment reporter, writing high-profile stories on a wide range of topics, from higher education and transportation to sports and criminal justice. He began his time at the Globe at the newspaper's suburban section in 2002.
