As we march steadily toward month 10 here at the Tribune, with the general election and the legislative session visible over the rise, a few kind words go a long way. And so it was that we awoke yesterday to find what was truly a terrific — by our estimation — profile of our no-longer-nascent news organization on NPR's Weekend Edition. Reporter David Folkenflik neatly took measure of what we've accomplished thus far (a lot) and what we still have to do (a lot). This story and Jake Batsell's excellent Columbia Journalism Reviewpiece a few weeks back do more than give us warm-and-fuzzies when we depart Trib HQ each day: They remind us of how lucky we are to enjoy the support of so many of you out there as we experiment with new business and content models.
If you're already a member of the Trib — by which I mean: a donor — big thanks. If you're not, well, we'd love to have you, especially if you like what you've seen on our site or what you heard in David's piece. Talk is cheap, but running an operation like ours isn't. Click here to donate. We promise to reward your faith in us.
