Report: Boston Globe bidders include Doug Manchester, Patriots' owners

The Boston Globe

Bids for The Boston Globe are due June 27, and Beth Healy reports there are eight groups that might submit offers.



U-T San Diego owner Doug Manchester "toured the Globe recently, according to people who saw him," Healy writes. Revolution Capital Group, which acquired the Tampa Tribune from Media General last October, is also a potential bidder.



Local interest includes the Kraft Group, which owns the New England Patriots; Boston lawyer Shannon Liss-Riordan; and a group including two members of the family that sold the Globe to the New York Times Co.
