Changes Coming At Tribune Co.
Timing is everything in journalism. I come out with a story about new Tribune Co. Sam Zell's newsroom tour, part of which was wondering, "When will the ax fall."
Well it fell yesterday. At least part of it. Zell announced he was cutting up to 500 people nationwide.
In more shake-up news, longtime Orlando Sentinel publisher Kathy Waltz announced her resignation, with Sun-Sentinel publisher Howard Greenberg filling in. The Orlando Sentinel story is quite vague about her reason for leaving: "Waltz said that she left after discussing ways to manage Tribune's T-6 newspapers, the name the company uses to denote its six smaller market papers, which include the two Florida publications and four others in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast."
