TRONC

This is a good place to drop general and weird news, entertainment, and general show prep material that might be interesting to air talent or producers. Hot dog threads ALWAYS welcome.

Tronc, one of the most lambasted corporate name changes of the digital era, is going to return to its original name, Tribune Publishing.

An insider said that the name change for the parent company of the Chicago Tribune and the New York Daily News was awaiting the completion of the spinoff of the Los Angeles Times, San Diego Union-Tribune and several other papers in its California Media group to health tech billionaire Patrick Soon Shiong. That $500 million deal was announced as final on Monday.
