Tribune Publishing – Why Work For Us?

Chicago Tribune newsroom

 Quality Content Matters

In  an evolving media landscape, the depth, credibility, and trust in  quality journalism remains paramount. Tribune Publishing’s brands create  and distribute unique and valuable content across its vast media  portfolio and offer integrated marketing, media, and business services  to consumers and advertisers. Tribune Publishing prides itself on the  legacy of its brands and remains committed to providing valuable news  and information as it continues to evolve as a digitally-focused,  premium content company. 

A Forward-Thinking Perspective

Tribune Publishing is a company built on over a century of  award-winning journalism. Today, its respected legacy of brands,  innovative digital solutions, and diverse advertising opportunities work  seamlessly to form a media company with local strength, national reach,  and global influence.

Innovation & Opportunity

Tribune  Publishing offers employees a variety of personal and professional  development opportunities—and fosters an environment of collaboration,  curiosity, and innovation. Its culture reflects its expansive audience,  diverse brands, and experienced talent that creates, distributes, and  monetizes its valuable content. Whether it’s continuing its tradition of  exceptional journalism or implementing new digital strategies, Tribune  Publishing is a one-stop media organization, providing creative  solutions and service for consumers. 

 What do we do?

We draw content from our vast media portfolio, where the search for truth and dedication to our communities have earned 60 Pulitzers. We maintain the highest values of journalism while merging that content with an arsenal of digital tools. With them, we can exponentially enhance visual storytelling, catapult our ability to track and engage our audience and offer world-class journalism with a cutting-edge delivery system.

How are we different?

No other media company can match the power of our brands and the power of our technology. No other media company surpasses the brilliance of our content and the brilliance of a digital delivery system that makes content easier to consume across every platform. No other media brand is so intellectually distinguished and radically distinct at the same time. And the journey is only beginning.

Why do we exist?

To transform journalism, offering the world a new model of media companies. Where ingenious technology allows a storied portfolio of storytelling to be pooled, personalized and presented to every person on Earth at the speed of light. We are on a mission to scrupulously maintain the integrity and values of each journalistic brand while enhancing our ability to share and visualize our content.

What problem are we trying to solve?

In a media landscape ravaged by disruption, journalism retains its depth, credibility and trust, but has been slow to mobilize the full thrust of cuttingedge digital management tools. Digitally native enterprises, on the other hand, can harness such tools but can’t offer the substance of traditional journalism. So far, no one has cracked the code on how to merge the two worlds.

Tribune Publishing informs, inspires and engages local communities across the U.S.  Tribune Publishing operates  local media businesses in eight markets with titles including:

Our beautiful new office in Chicago

Tribune Publishing is the media company behind newspapers like the Chicago Tribune,  Baltimore Sun, New York Daily News, and many more. The company recently  completed its move from Tribune Tower — which it moved into in 1925 —  into a new space right across the street from Millennium Park.

What was the most important thing to you in designing the space?

“Our new headquarters needed to offer bright and open spaces that  promote and advance teamwork and collaboration,” said Chief Human  Resources Officer Maya Bordeaux. “Our goal was to strike a balance and  honor the legacy, tradition and rich history of the Chicago Tribune as  well as the rapidly evolving digital era and our need to have a modern,  sleek and technologically progressive work space. Our mission is to  provide journalistic excellence, and we were committed to creating an  environment that inspires innovation and creativity.”

What feature of your office do employees love the most, and why?

“Our new home has outstanding amenities, including an exterior deck  that offers spectacular views and a state-of-the-art health club, and  it’s centrally located, close to many restaurants and mass transit  options,” said Bordeaux. “Employees also love the private workrooms, and  the huddle areas with collaborative workspaces that allow for meetings  in an open area. We’re honoring our journalistic roots by including  tables made from old press plates, framed editorial cartoons and  conference rooms named after our Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists.”

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tribune Publishing (Hartford, CT) in March 2018.


    I had a 30 minute phone interview with the recruiter, followed up by another 30 minute phone interview with the head of the department and a 30 minute interview with the corporate head of Circulation. They all asked good questions and it was a positive experience.
