LAST-MINUTE BID: Mort Zuckerman, owner of the New York Daily News and U.S. News & World Report, has submitted an 11th-hour bid for BusinessWeek. Zuckerman, who is also the former owner of Fast Company and The Atlantic Monthly, joins Bloomberg LP, OpenGate Capital and ZelnickMedia, which all submitted bids by Tuesday. A spokeswoman for Zuckerman confirmed the bid but declined to elaborate further. Sources said Bloomberg is said to still be the front-runner to buy BusinessWeek from McGraw-Hill Cos.
