New York Times ‘pleased’ with Boston Globe interest

Meets with bidders, potential investors

New York Times Co. chief executive Mark Thompson told investors at a conference in Boston on Tuesday that he was “pleased” so far with the amount of interest the company had attracted from potential buyers for The Boston Globe.

Thompson, speaking at the ­JPMorgan Global Technology, Media and Telecom Conference on the waterfront, declined to discuss more concrete details of the sale process. The Times Co. said in February it planned to sell the New England Media Group, which includes the Globe, to focus on its flagship newspaper and an international strategy.
