The Boston Globe


June 27 deadline looms for bids to buy Globe

At least 8 potential purchasers may give offers to Times Co.

At least eight potential buyers, ranging from former newspaper executives with local roots to private equity investors from the West Coast, are weighing bids for The Boston Globe as the June 27 deadline for submitting offers approaches, according to several people involved in or briefed on the sale process.

Among those vying for the Globe are two competing local groups, one led by members of the Taylor family that once owned the company and another that includes a former president of the newspaper. Two out-of-town newspaper executives — one with a paper in San Diego, the other a private equity group with a paper in Tampa — are also potential bidders. And the Kraft Group, owner of the New England Patriots football team, has expressed interest.
