The Chicago Tribune today said it would be expanding the number of “Perspective” pages seen in print and digital, beginning on Monday. The move will raise to four the number of opinion pages offered to readers Monday through Friday, and to five on Sunday.
“It represents a doubling of the content of the opinion and commentary since 2011,” Gerry Kern, editor of Chicago Tribune, told TNM. “It’s been an area of continuing investment for us because it supports the mission that we have here in Chicago, at the Chicago Tribune, to be at the center of a community of readers that care about what happens to this city.”
