'Globe' to keep tobacco ads

Published on .

The New York Times' move to stop accepting tobacco ads will have no immediate effect on sister New York Times Co. paper The Boston Globe, said a spokesman for that paper. The Globe may review its acceptance of tobacco ads but will continue to accept tobacco advertising. The paper limits what can be in tobacco ads. While newspapers in the past haven't been a big part of tobacco advertising, there have been some indications that papers would benefit from the abandonment of outdoor advertising. Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corp. acknowledged it has switched some outdoor ad money to newspapers and magazines, and recently has run Carlton and GPC ads in papers.
