The NewsGuild of Greater Philadelphia


July 7, 2020billrossInquirer

Dear Guild Member,

Last week, NewsGuild journalists representing 10 Tribune Publishing Co. publications including the Chicago Tribune, the Hartford Courant, the Virginia Pilot and the (Allentown, PA) Morning Call, launched a collective campaign to return these institutions to local ownership, a sweeping vote of no confidence in Tribune’s current leadership. These campaigns run parallel to The Baltimore Sun Guild’s Save Our Sun campaign, announced earlier on April 28.

The NewsGuild campaigns are aimed at finding investors to buy the papers and building relationships with those interested in saving local news through new ownership models.

Alden has a well-documented history of buying newspapers, loading them with debt, slashing staff and selling off assets, extracting profits while the papers are left to bleed out.
