Globe: At least 3 investor groups with local ties interested in buying newspaper


( – The Boston Globe says at least three investor groups with local ties are interested in buying the cash-strapped newspaper.

Sources say the competing bids range from $60 million to $80 million, which is a deal, considering the New York Times bought the Globe for $1.1 billion in 1993.
