LA Times publisher named CEO of Tribune

Eddy Hartenstein was appointed chief executive of Chicago's Tribune Company. The Times says he will remain publisher of Los Angeles Times Media Group, but has appointed former Times executive Kathy Thomson as president and chief operating officer of the paper. So much for the four-person executive team put in place some months ago. "The board feels strongly that it is in Tribune's best interest to have one person providing strategic vision and day-to-day direction for the company and its employees as we prepare to emerge from the Chapter 11 process," says Sam Zell, Tribune's chairman, in the LAT story.
