Anschutz Not Interested In Metro

Philip Anschutz is not considering buying three free newspapers under the Metro banner, as had been reported, according to Anschutz spokesman Jim Monaghan.

The Boston Phoenix had reported that Anschutz’s company is looking into the for-sale publications in New York, Boston and Philadelphia, but Monaghan told the Denver Business Journal, "There’s no truth to this."

Anschutz publishes free daily papers under the Examiner name in San Francisco, Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
