Chicago Tribune - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1212 words)
The Tribune's reputation for innovation extended to radio — it bought an early station, WDAP, in 1924 and renamed it WGN (AM), the station call letters standing for the paper's self-description as the "World's Greatest Newspaper." WGN Television was launched April 5, 1948.
In 2004, the Tribune endorsed President Bush for re-election, a decision consistent with the paper's traditional support for the Republican Party, but also endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for the Senate and Democrat Melissa Bean, who defeated Philip Crane, the House of Representatives' longest-serving Republican.
The Chicago Tribune is the founding business unit of The Tribune Company, which includes many newspapers and television stations around the country.
