Metro: Still Publishing, Still Hiring

Time to contemplate the future of free newspaper chain Metro. Back in January, we got wind of <a how the New York Times Co. was in talks to purchase the NYC & Boston editions… But we haven’t heard anything about it in the meantime. A number of editors were laid off and there was speculation that one or more of the editions would fold.

But good news for Metro: The paper is doing well enough that they’re able to advertise for new employees. It looks like they’re hunting for a new sports editor for Philly. A sign of financial health and stability at Metro? We hope so.
