Who's Aaron Kushner, and Why Does He Want 'The Boston Globe'?

Entrepreneur reportedly ready to offer $200 million

In 1993, The New York Times Company bought The Boston Globe from Boston's Taylor family for $1.1 billion—the highest price ever paid for a U.S. newspaper. Now, 38-year-old entrepreneur and Boston transplant Aaron Kushner is reportedly preparing to bid around just $200 million for the paper and its parent company, the New England Media Group.
