Sun-T on Chi Trib troubles, 12/8/05, Eric Herman reporting: Trib Co. stock down 25% in 2005! It’s collapsing Wash Bureaus – Chi Trib, LA Times, et al. – into one, coverage to be "better than ever through greater collaboration," says Dennis FitzSimons, Trib chairman. (Who will be in charge there?)
Troubles are part of a national pattern: In two middle quarters of 2005, U.S. newspaper circulation fell 2.6% on average. Trib Co. might sell things off, maybe the Cubs!
