Chicago Tribune has launched its new multi-platform project, TribU today. TribU is more than just the Tribune's new lifestyle section. In addition to newspaper columns, it is a full website that aims to provide "lessons for life." Topics covered will include relationships, health, nutrition, money matters, careers, family, and ways to live a better life, both inside and out. TribU's focus is on personal & professional growth. In addition to the Chicago Tribune newspaper & website, TribU will also be incorporated into segments on WGN-AM, WGN-TV, CLTV, and live events.
TribU's host and ringmaster is Jenniffer Weigel, the multi-talented Chicago media personality and daughter of beloved Chicago news & sports anchor Tim Weigel. Weigel will provide a column each day for the paper and/or website, as well as appear on the radio & television to promote TribU, and be the emcee at the upcoming live events.
The TribU section and project was originally slated to kick off on September 1st. A decision was recently made to make it happen today, one week early, since all the pieces were already in place and ready to go.
The first TribU live event will take place in early October and will be a panel discussion on relationships featuring the Tribune's "Ask Amy" columnist Amy Dickinson and Jenniffer Weigel. Details of which will be revealed in the next couple of weeks.
