Tribune Co. has appointed the leader of its Chicago newspaper to oversee six other dailies as part of a reorganization that will eliminate more jobs at the troubled media company.
The changes announced Monday will give Chicago Tribune Publisher Tony Hunter responsibility for all Tribune Co. newspapers except the Los Angeles Times. The other newspapers reporting to Hunter are the South Florida Sun Sentinel, The Sun in Baltimore, Hartford Courant, The Morning Call in Allentown, Pa., and Daily Press in Newport News, Va.
Tribune Co. also promoted Vince Casanova to be president and chief operating officer of Chicago Tribune Media Group.
A Tribune Co. spokesman says some jobs are being cut in the reshuffling, but declined to provide specifics. Tribune Co. has been operating under bankruptcy protection since 2008.
