The Boston Globe


Two groups enter bids for Globe

At least two groups submitted bids to buy The Boston Globe on Thursday, according to several people briefed on the offers, meeting the deadline set by investment bankers for the The New York Times Co.

One group is led by Jack Griffin, a former Time Inc. chief executive working with two members of the Taylor family, which sold the Globe to the Times Co. in 1993. The other group is led by Boston private equity executive Heb Ryan and former Globe president Rick Daniels.
