Tribune and Gannett Meet in Chicago With No Progress on Deal

Gannett and Tribune Publishing leadership met in Chicago Thursday, but no progress was made on an unsolicited bid to buy the Chicago-based newspaper chain, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

The meeting, held at the suggestion of Tribune Publishing Chairman Michael Ferro, brought Gannett Chairman John Jeffry Louis and CEO Robert Dickey together with Ferro and CEO Justin Dearborn. Sources said it was the first face-to-face meeting between executives of the two companies since Gannett’s $815 million offer was made public last month.
