Boston Herald’s top bidder notorious for downsizing
WGBH - 02/14/2018
WGBH News media analyst and Northeastern University professor Dan Kennedy said GateHouse Media was pegged as the front-runner to assume control.
“It seemed to be teed up for GateHouse media, but Digital First came into the picture pretty late — they did not make a formal bid until last week,” Kennedy said. “The understanding of most people looking at this was that they were going to outbid GateHouse. And in the end, they outbid GateHouse by quite a lot.”
