Tribune Co. Chief Revnue and Sales Officer Ed Wilson, who also headed the Chicago media giant’s broadcast division, announced Friday he is stepping down from both positions effective immediately.
Wilson had been revenue chief since 2009 and president of Tribune Broadcasting since 2008. He said he is being retained as a consultant to the company.
“The time is right for both the company and for me to make this move,” said Wilson. “It has been an amazing ride since I came onboard and I?m grateful to (Tribune Co. CEO) Randy Michaels for giving me this opportunity?the future for Tribune is a bright one.”
“Our station group and WGN America have made tremendous progress over the last two years under Ed?s leadership?we?ve expanded local news in all our markets, lined up some great new programming that will debut this fall and streamlined our decision-making process,” said Michaels.
