Incorporated in 1847 with the founding of the Chicago Tribune, Tribune Publishing operated as a division of the Tribune Company, a Chicago-based multimedia conglomerate, until it was spun off into a separate public company in August 2014.

The company confirmed its sale to hedge fund Alden Global Capital on May 21, 2021.[3][4][5] The transaction officially closed on May 25.[6][7] Prior to this acquisition, Tribune Publishing was the nation's third-largest newspaper publisher (behind Gannett and The McClatchy Company), with eleven daily newspapers and commuter tabloids throughout the United States. With the acquisition, it became the second-largest newspaper publisher in the United States.[8]
