CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times are combining their international reporting operations as their corporate parent tries to save money while reorganizing in bankruptcy court.
The plans were outlined Tuesday in a story posted on the Chicago Tribune's Web site. A Tribune spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to messages left late Tuesday.
The international cooperative, to be based in Los Angeles, will serve all newspapers owned by the Tribune Co., which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in December.
The Chicago-based company has already combined the Washington D.C. operations of its newspapers.
