Media World: Estimates for The Boston Globe are all over the map


New York Times media columnist David Carr this weekend asked several media pundits what they thought the newspaper publisher could get for The Boston Globe. The results were extraordinarily depressing, especially considering that the paper sold for more than $1 billion in the early 1990s.

Here is a sampling of their of their views:

Reed Phillips, a partner at DeSilva and Phillips, valued New England's largest paper at "the high end, not more than $50 million and, at the low end, a requirement to help fund the buyer's acquisition with as much as $25 million contributed by The New York Times (yes, you read that right!)."
