Mark Thompson ‘Very Pleased’ With Efforts to Sell Boston Globe

The New York Times Company officially put The Boston Globe up for sale in late February, so naturally, everyone wants an update on the situation. Aside from a list of about 800 rumored buyers, there hasn’t been any word. However, Mark Thompson, the Times’ CEO, said things are going great.

The Globe reports that during an investor conference call, Thompson explained that he was “very pleased with the interest, and the progress, that’s been expressed so far.”

Okay, that’s about as vague as it gets. One nugget we did find though: Evercore Group, which is responsible for fetching bids for the Globe, has already conducted meetings with six different interested parties. Who were they? Know one knows! But apparently they were very pleasing. So please be pleased.
