Chicago Reader’s new publisher is Solomon Lieberman



After a tumultuous few years, the Chicago Reader moved to non-profit status in 2022. A six-month nationwide search for the right person to lead the new organization that publishes the Reader led to a homegrown talent who has worked at the Better Government Association and other Chicago-based organizations.

Reset checks in with the current publisher and the publisher-to-be who starts in mid-February.

GUESTS: Solomon Lieberman, incoming CEO and publisher of the Reader Institute for Community Journalism, which publishes the Chicago Reader

Tracy Baim, co-publisher and president of the Chicago Reader
