The president and CEO of Boch Enterprises, Boch said the deal would also involve Bruce Mittman and Community Broadcasters.

The New York Times announced that they were looking for a buyer for the Globe earlier this week.

On Friday New York Times Co. vice-chairman Michael Golden joined Globe publisher Chris Mayer in a series of meetings with employees and the paper's 10 unions, according to the Boston Herald.

Another name mentioned as a possible buyer for the Globe was Wellesley businessman Aaron Kushner.

Kushner kicked the tires on a potential deal to buy the Globe in 2011. He spoke with Fox 25's sister-station in Los Angeles.

"There are a lot of businesses that are much easier and a lot less scary than newspapers," said Kushner. "But there are very few institutions that I think you can own and grow that matter more than newspapers."

Stephen Taylor, has also been mentioned as a possible buyer. His family sold the Globe to the Times in 1993.

Warren Buffett, who bought 60 newspapers in 2012, has also been named as a potential buyer.
