The Week: Media News - Connors' Boston Globe bid

Jack Connors, the founder of Hill Holliday, has joined the race to buy The Boston Globe from The New York Times Company. He will be up against Stephen Taylor - a former executive at the newspaper and a member of the family that sold it to The New York Times Company in 1993 for $1.1 billion - and Stephen Pagliuca, the managing director of the private equity company Bain Capital and co-owner of the NBA team the Boston Celtics.
