Tribune company to buy the Sun-Times suburban papers

The Tribune is reporting some news this morning that the parent company of the Chicago Sun-Times is selling off its daily and weekly suburban newspapers to Tribune Publishing. That means the parent company, Wrapports, would only have the Sun-Times and the Chicago Reader, an alt-weekly, in its Chicago newspaper portfolio. Owen Youngman, professor of Digital Media Strategy at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, walks us through what that means for Chicago's media landscape. (Photo: Flickr/Smaedli)
