Savage is believed to have written the first mainstream media story about the Dark Side of the Rainbow, the practice of listening to Pink Floyd's album The Dark Side of the Moon while watching the film The Wizard of Oz, in August 1995, while working as a college intern at The Journal Gazette in Fort Wayne. He went on in 1999 to work as a staff writer for the Miami Herald, where, under the byline "Charles Savage", he covered local and state government and occasionally reviewed movies. He changed his byline to "Charlie Savage" when he moved to The Boston Globe's Washington Bureau in 2003 and kept it that way when he moved to the Times Washington Bureau in May 2008.
