Between all the layoffs at Conde Nast and The New York Times, you’d think that a journalist who still has a job would hold tight for dear life. Well, as we learned last week with ex-Tribune Co. employees starting The Chicago News Cooperative and selling their content to Tribune competitor, New York Times Co., sometimes leaving a job can be good for your career.
Now James O’Shea’s new project has attracted another Chicago Tribune writer, famed columnist David Greising, who will be leaving Sam Zell’s publishing nightmare for more cooperative pastures.
Greising was the Tribune‘s chief business correspondent, so it’s hard not to take his departure as a microcosm of Tribune Co.’s quickly decaying structure. Greising will be joining former Tribune managing editor James Warren and former Tribune editor Ann Marie Lipinski.
