Metro coming to New York

Metro International, the Swedish company with 34 free dailies worldwide including Boston and Philadelphia, plans to launch in New York in May. The launch was delayed because amNew York hit the market first in 2003. Metro NY's publisher will be Henry Scott, who worked in new media at The New York Times and also was president of Out magazine. The editor will be Stefano Hatfield, who wrote for Advertising Age and was Ad Age Global's editorial director.
