In the latest move to cut costs, the Tribune Company has announced it's combining the Chicago Tribune's and LA Times's international reporting departments. The new unit will be based out of Los Angeles and will serve all of the Tribune Company's papers. Chicago Tribune Editor Gerould Kern said, "At a time when there is more competition than ever for local audiences, we must bring people news and information that is unique and valuable. The new foreign operation will help us use our resources more effectively to succeed in the future." [AP via Trib]
