The New York Post reports that Peters had wanted his name to stay a secret, but word got out anyway. If he is indeed interested, Peters joins three others vying for the Daily News — John Catsimatidis, Jimmy Finkelstein and James Dolan.
William Stadiem, a screenwriter and lawyer, had a hilarious take on Peters’ supposed desire to buy the tabloid. “I think that is insane,” he told the Post. “He’s barely ever read a newspaper.” So there’s that.
The Daily News is likely to name the winning bidder in about two weeks. Hold on to your hats.
