At least eight potential buyers, ranging from former newspaper executives with local roots to private equity investors from the West Coast, are weighing bids for The Boston Globe as the June 27 deadline for submitting offers approaches, according to several people involved in or briefed on the sale process.

Among those vying for the Globe are two competing local groups, one led by members of the Taylor family that once owned the company and another that includes a former president of the newspaper. Two out-of-town newspaper executives, owners of papers in Tampa and San Diego, are also potential bidders. And the Kraft Group, owners of the New England Patriots football team, has expressed interest.

The list of interested parties is still taking shape, and some groups could eventually drop out or merge.
