A Boston Magazine article explores the changes at The Boston Globe as new owner, John Henry, looks to overhaul the paper's business model and, possibly, even the world of journalism.
The Boston Magazine article paints an interesting portrait (quite literally if you check out the illustration) of a man who hopes to breathe new life into the region's largest daily media group, Boston Globe Media Partners.
“I wanted to be a part of finding the solution for the Globe and newspapers in general,” Henry told Boston Magazine. “I feel my mortality. I don’t want to waste any of the time I have left, and I felt this was a cause worth fighting for.”
The article delves into the history of the paper, its struggles, and Henry's ambition to deliver a comprehensive digital and print strategy in the 21st century.
The article has gained attention across the region, including from media critic Dan Kennedy, who offered six takeaways from the story.
