To be the dominant source of that news, you have to put it where people want to find it: newspapers for people who want their news that way. Internet for people who want it that way. Television for people who want it that way. Radio for people who want it that way. Each option presents a great array of revenue potentials, but only as long as you send the message to everyone in Chicago that Tribune is the place for news again. 

Sincerely,

Charles M. Madigan
