    Tribune changes its name to tronc 


    as you know i grew up reading the Chicago Tribune

    it’s a major reason i wanted to be a writer and go into journalism.

    never did i think that i would ever become either of those things, but it happened.

    during my time at the Tribune-owned LA Times i had lots of ideas.

    most of them were rejected either directly or indirectly by “Chicago” aka Tribune.

    little did i know that all i had to say was

    yo, you should change the name of the company to tronc.

    so the lesson i learned yesterday was

    keep being creative, keep pitching ideas, shake off the rejections

    one day they’ll say yes

    tronc yeah they will
