- Michael Ferro, majority owner of the Chicago Sun-Times, has become the largest shareholder in the parent company of the Chicago Tribune, Tribune Publishing.
- Baltimore Sun Media Group publisher Timothy E. Ryan has been chosen to lead the Los Angeles Times and the San Diego Union-Tribune, sources said Tuesday.
- Tribune is just the latest multimedia news company to split up its broadcasting and publishing assets, joining Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. and E.W. Scripps, which completed such a spinoff just last week. Such separation is gaining momentum as traditional media seek to adapt to the fast-evolving digital landscape.
