Shake-up Planned at Metro Boston

Metro International S.A. is planning a shake-up of its Metro Boston newspaper, ousting publisher Stuart Layne and cutting staff at the free daily paper, according to several Metro employees briefed on the matter.

In Boston, Metro plans to eliminate its Gameday Sox section, a sports editor, the T-Time editor, and about eight sales positions, said the employees.

The New York Times Co., which owns the Boston Globe and has a 49 percent stake in Metro Boston, is likely to take a larger role in running the Metro Boston operation, the employees said. [Click for MORE]
