february 9, 2007  10:56 am
The Icelandic conglomerate Dagsbrun is planning a launch of Boston Now, a free commuter daily that will compete with Metro Boston, according to the Boston Globe. The paper will be run by free-daily vet Russel Pergament, who launched Metro Boston and then AM New York. In explaining the new paper, which he hopes to roll out by the fall, Pergament tells the Globe: "Our commitment is local ... We are going to break some news. It is not going to be just watered down wire copy."
