By the 1890s, The Boston Globe had become a stronghold, with an editorial staff dominated by Irish Catholics.
In 1964, Tom Winship succeeded his father, Larry Winship, as editor.
In February 2013, The New York Times Company announced that it would sell the New England Media Group, which encompasses the Globe ; bids were received by six parties, of them included John Gormally (then-owner of WGGB-TV in Springfield, Massachusetts), another group included members of former Globe publishers, the Taylor family, and Boston Red Sox principal owner John W.
Henry, who bid for the paper through the New England Sports Network (majority owned by Fenway Sports Group alongside the Boston Bruins).
Originally a morning daily, it began a Sunday edition in 1877, which absorbed the rival Boston Weekly Globe in 1892.
In 1878, The Boston Globe started an afternoon edition called The Boston Evening Globe, which ceased publication in 1979.
Now is the time to make your own love story as we have witnessed so many firsthand.
However, early on the morning of May 5, 2009, The New York Times Company announced it had reached a tentative deal with the Boston Newspaper Guild, which represents most of the Globe editorial staff, that allowed it to get the concessions it demanded.
The paper's other three major unions had agreed to concessions on May 3, 2009, after The New York Times Company threatened to give the government 60-days notice that it intended to close the paper.
However, after the NESN group dropped out of the running to buy the paper, Henry made his own separate bid to purchase The Globe in July 2013.
The Globe moved its printing operations in June 2017 to Myles Standish Industrial Park in Taunton, Massachusetts.
