I don't know about that.  I believe it's the case that the Globe's
online readership now significantly outnumbers the Globe's dead-tree
readership; if the advertising revenues have not followed suit, it's
not for lack of trying.  I would not be surprised if their online
readership greatly outnumbered all other local media outlets'.  So
they seem to be with it, even if the financials aren't quite working
out for them.  (Let's see if they continue the trend of retreating
behind a paywall.)  I don't think there are too many broadcast
stations which could say that about their audiences.   (I can think of
a few, none in this market.)
