Tribune Publishing CEO aims to boost online subscriptions, ads

Jack Griffin, chief executive of Tribune Publishing, said his primary focus at the newly spun-off company is growing online subscriptions and digital advertising at its eight major newspapers.

"The days of just taking your print product and raising the price every year are out of vogue," Griffin said. "We'll be adding more value."

To do so, the rest of Tribune's newspapers will replicate the new Times’ digital format by the end of 2014. The company will also redesign and relaunch all of its mobile apps and restructure subscription packages. Papers that don't currently charge for online access will set up metered pay walls, Griffin said.
