Chicago Tribune to launch tabloid version next week

Chicago Tribune to launch tabloid version next week

The Chicago Tribune, one of the flagship newspapers of the struggling Tribune Co., announced on Tuesday that it will launch a tabloid version of the paper next week. Newsstands, retail outlets and street boxes will offer the tabloid version starting on Monday, the Tribune Co. said in a statement. It will not replace the broadsheet version delivered to homes.
The contents of the tabloid and broadsheet versions of the paper will be identical, the company added.
The Tribune Co. said launching a weekday tabloid was intended to provide commuters with a more "convenient" format of the paper.
The Chicago Tribune's chief rival, the Chicago Sun-Times, is a tabloid.
The Tribune Co., which also owns the Los Angeles Times and other dailies, filed for bankruptcy protection last month.
Like many US newspapers, the Tribune has been grappling with declining circulation, a loss of readership to online media and a steep drop in print advertising revenue.
