7 Tumultuous Years for Tribune Newspapers
Posted: 10/7/2013 | By: Alan D. Mutter | Newsosaur
to cut up to $100 million in spending at the Tribune Co. newspapers is
but the latest challenge to a group of iconic titles that have been
twisting in the wind for seven of the most tumultuous years ever
experienced by the publishing industry.
The budget cuts in store for the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times and six other dailies
published by the company add to the uncertainty, anxiety and indecision
that have distracted staffers at the publications since a series of
convulsive – and inconclusive – changes in ownership and management
commenced way back in 2006. Sadly, as discussed in a moment, there is
still no end in sight.
