TribLocal Re-launches With Expanded Geographies And Coverage

CHICAGO, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TribLocal, Chicago Tribune's hyper-local news initiative, is expanding its coverage and re-configuring its editions, effective today.

TribLocal will move from 11 editions to 16, with two of those - Orland Park/ Homer Glen and Highland Park/ Deerfield - showcasing more in-depth coverage than ever before. Readers can look forward to more interconnected town websites – 42 in total – that include stronger content groupings as it relates to towns with neighboring interests and demographics. With this expansion, TribLocal will add reporting resources to handle the increased coverage and report on the communities more efficiently.

"As always, our emphasis is on news. Residents of the communities around Chicago want an honest accounting of what transpires in their village halls, their school boards and their police stations. The Tribune newsroom is renowned for investigative reporting, and that culture of watchdog journalism courses through the entire staff," said Peter Kendall, Managing Editor of the Chicago Tribune.  "We also want to make it easy for people to know what's going on inside all the other buildings in town – the theaters, shops, restaurants, hospitals. We'll put all of that in one place."

Chicago Tribune subscribers will continue to find TribLocal on Thursdays, in conjunction with their home-delivered Chicago Tribune. Additionally, TribLocal is set to begin executing a voluntary delivery program for non-Chicago Tribune subscribers, where those interested in receiving their area's TribLocal edition may choose to do so at no cost. Highland Park/ Deerfield and Orland Park/ Homer Glen will be the first towns under this model and those interested can call 1-866-697-4517 and mention offer code T-LOCAL.

Launched in 2007, TribLocal's websites and newspapers provide a compilation of suburban stories, photos and events written by town-specific reporters and the Chicago Tribune newsroom, with supported data content from third party community news vendors, including community listings, announcements and other informational items issued by community groups, local government and other organizations.
