BOSTON (AP) - New Boston Globe owner John Henry says he will be the newspaper's publisher.
Henry said Thursday that he will concentrate on strategy and Boston advertising executive Mike Sheehan will oversee day-to-day business operations as CEO.
Henry is the principal owner of the Boston Red Sox and bought the Globe from the New York Times Co. in October. He is the Globe's third owner and becomes its ninth publisher.
Sheehan was the CEO of Hill Holliday and joined the Globe earlier this month as a consultant. The Massachusetts native began his newspaper career as sports editor of the Weymouth News and as a reporter for The Patriot Ledger, of Quincy, before moving into advertising.
Former publisher Christopher Mayer was credited with restoring the Globe's profitability. He resigned this month.
