BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today’s announcement by The New York Times Company should make it clear exactly how strongly I feel about the New England Media Group – The Boston Globe, The Worcester Telegram & Gazette and Metro Boston – and the essential role that its journalists and employees play in Boston, throughout New England, and beyond.
The Boston Globe’s award-winning journalism as well as its rich history and tradition of excellence have established it as one of the most well respected media companies in the country.
Until the transaction has officially closed and a change in ownership is completed, it would be inappropriate for me to comment specifically about the future of the New England Media Group. I wish to pass along my sincere thanks to The Times and its Board of Directors, in particular.
This is a thriving, dynamic region that needs a strong, sustainable Boston Globe playing an integral role in the community’s long-term future. In coming days there will be announcements concerning those joining me in this community commitment and effort.
