About THE BALTIMORE SUN COMPANY

Print newspapers are not dead! So says Tribune Publishing Company. The company's portfolio includes 10 daily newspapers in 8 key markets. Tribune Publishing also owns more than 60 digital properties and 150 niche publications. Its iconic newspapers include the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, and the Baltimore Sun. Despite its attachment to print, Tribune Publishing has been rolling out a state-of-the-art, mobile-first digital platform for its key news and information brands nationwide. The company's niche publications include the Red Eye in Chicago along with Hoy and El Sentinel, the largest Spanish-language newspaper network in the US.

Operations

Along with its well-known newspapers, Tribune Publishing's operations include a suite of digital, native advertising and branded entertainment services and solutions for marketers. Its Tribune Content Agency provides content to publishers of all types. The company's 435 Digital is an in-house agency that partners with local businesses to develop and execute online strategies. Tribune 365 is a national cross-platform sales team offering advertisers customized solutions across all media platforms. Tribune Publishing's TribDirect is a direct-marketing solution used for direct mail campaigns.

Financial Performance

When the publishing division were still part of Tribune Company before the spin off, the company's revenue decreased in fiscal 2013 compared to the prior fiscal period. It reported $2.9 billion in revenue for fiscal 2013, down from $3.1 billion in revenue in fiscal 2012.

More alarming was the drop in net income in fiscal 2013 compared to the previous fiscal year. The company reported net income of $241 million for fiscal 2013, down from a net income of $422 million for fiscal 2012.

Strategy

In 2013 Tribune Company filed paperwork with the SEC for a spinoff of its newspaper publishing operations (to form Tribune Publishing) to shareholders and changed the name of its media and digital business to Tribune Media. The transaction, which was completed in the first half of 2014, allows Tribune Media to focus on its growing television operations and digital properties.
