Tribune Co. is out of bankruptcy

Newspapers can now be sold

Analysts and prospective buyers are preparing for horse trading to begin over the Tribune Co.’s newspapers now that the company, whose holdings include The Los Angeles Times and The Chicago Tribune along with other media assets, has emerged from bankruptcy protection.

Tribune, which completed its bankruptcy paperwork Monday, has not revealed the sale of any assets, but it is likely to do so in the next several months so it can streamline its business, said Reed Phillips, managing partner of DeSilva & Phillips, a media banking firm. The troubled state of the newspaper industry makes those assets most likely to be sold, he added. Less clear, however, is whether the company will sell them all at once or by region, like selling The Chicago Tribune with Chicago magazine.
