Car dealer makes bid on paper, announced for sale in the last few weeks. A Wellesley man made bid on paper in 2010.
The Boston Globe is for sale, as its employees have learned over the last few weeks. One bid for the paper is coming from Norwood-based car dealer Ernie Boch, Jr., who is teaming up with a Newton marketer Bruce Mittman, president of Mittcom. This isn't the first time the paper was up for sale--and last time, there was a tie to Wellesley. In 2010, Aaron Kushner, 37, planned to make a bid to the New York Times Co. Boston Magazine speculated whether Kushner could save the paper then. At the time of writing, there are no reports of Kushner looking to repeat his 2010 bid. Do you have any ideas on who should pick up the Globe?
