Yes, the Times Co. still owns the paper--but the Boston Globe has still changed quite a bit since last year's Times Co. shutdown threat. I ponder the flux in this week's Phoenix. Please take a look.
So speculates the Boston Business Journal, which throws out a few other names as possible buyers--including Herald owner Pat Purcell and Jack Connors, chair of Partners HealthCare's board of trustees.
A week or two ago, after hearing that Connors was still interested in the paper, I called his office to see if the rumor was legit.
