Some Pressing Questions for New Boston Globe Owner John Henry
Huffington Post - 08/03/2013
The speculation had been building since Wednesday, when the Boston Globe reported that Red Sox principal owner John Henry had restructured his bid to buy the paper.
It reached a peak on Friday afternoon, when legendary baseball reporter Peter Gammons — himself a Globe alumnus — posted a one-line item on his new website, Gammons Daily: “A source says the New York Times Corporation has chosen John Henry as the new owner of the Boston Globe.”
Confirmation came early today, as the Globe and the New York Times each reported that Henry had purchased the Globe and its associated properties — most prominently Boston.com and the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester — for $70 million. The Globe‘s storyled page one, whereas the Times‘ version apparently didn’t even make it into today’s print edition.
