    A Denver-based company has emerged as the winning bidder for a Boston newspaper that filed for bankruptcy in December.

    Digital First Media's $11.9 million bid beat two other bidders for the Boston Herald in a five-hour bankruptcy auction held Tuesday.

    The bid needs approval from a bankruptcy court judge, and a hearing is scheduled for Friday.

    Digital First owns hundreds of publications, including the Lowell Sun and Sentinel & Enterprise of Fitchburg in Massachusetts.
