Tribune Co., which owns the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and seven other daily newspapers, is reviewing possible cost cuts in its print publishing division.

"We're trying to determine how to put our publishing businesses on the best possible footing for the long term, to make them as strong as possible," said company spokesman Gary Weitman in a statement.

Weitman issued the statement after a Chicago media blog reported that Tribune CEO Peter Liguori has directed the vice presidents in the publishing unit to look for ways to save $100 million.
