Report: Times Makes Offer to Buy Free Daily, Metro

Neal Ungerleider of FishBowlNY is reporting that the New York Times "has made an offer to buy" the New York and Boston editions of the free daily Metro. Catherine Mathis, spokeswoman for the Times, said she couldn’t comment to Mr. Ungerleider because of company policy.

Metro has been going through all sorts of problems: they just dumped their New York and Boston publishers and the international company that publishes Metro is looking to sell off its U.S. holdings.
