Exec to spearhead communications as company preps for 'transformative 2014'

Tribune CEO Peter Liguori cited Robinson’s experience in media and government affairs as Tribune gears up for what CEO Peter Liguori called a “transformative 2014.”

The company is preparing the spinoff of its newspaper holdings into a separate company, and it has doubled the size of its TV station holdings with the recent acquisition of the Local TV station group.
