Chicago Tribune Mag Ceasing Weekly Publication

The Chicago Tribune Magazine is ceasing as a weekly publication after July 28, as part of a series of changes to the Sunday paper.

In a note to readers, Tribune editor Gerould W. Kern said the magazine will “appear as a series of themed magazines throughout the year—roughly once a month beginning in September.”

Kern said declining advertising and high cost made weekly publication “unsustainable.”

Beginning with the July 5 editions, the Tribune is introducing a tabloid feature section called “Sunday” that will include some of the content that appeared weekly in the magazine, including puzzles and the “Sidewalks” column by writer Rick Kogan.

The Sunday local news section is being moved inside the A section, and a personal finance section that was once part of the Business section will to a new “Money & Real Estate” section.
