Dorchester-native Mark Wahlberg is featured this Sunday night on “60 Minutes.” The segment runs just days before the Massachusetts premier of his movie “The Fighter” based on Lowell’s own Irish Micky Ward. While a Globe “Celebrity News” item puts the focus on his Dorchester roots, word has it that Lowell plays its own part in the “60 Minutes” story.
Another “word on the street” has it that Lowell will get its own premier of “The Fighter” soon. Stay tuned for the real word from Greater Merrimack Valley CVB guru Deb Belanger.
