Boston Metro gets new publisher

Boston Metro has a new publisher, former Boston Celtics executive Stuart Layne, who fills a spot that apparently has been vacant since Feb. 17 when Peggy Onstad left the paper. Onstad is now at Advanstar Communications, overseeing magazines on skin care. When Onstad left, Metro said it was bringing in a "corporate troubleshooter." Layne was executive vice president of marketing and sales with the Boston Celtics. After that, he created a sports and entertainment marketing company called Seven 2 Sports Marketing.
