Sale of The Virginian-Pilot 
Wednesday, May 30, 2018

The Virginian-Pilot has been sold to Tronc Inc., parent company of the Daily Press, officials said on Tuesday, May 29. Tronc also owns the Chicago Tribune, New York Daily News and the Baltimore Sun among other publications. We'll unpack what this means for local journalism with a panel of experts. We'll talk with Rick Edmonds, reporter for the Poynter Institute, Earl Swift, former Virginian-Pilot reporter and Jane Elizabeth, Director of the Accountability Journalism Program at the American Press Institute. Elizabeth also created and managed The Virginian-Pilot's first digital news team. And then later on, we'll switch gears and hear the fascinating story of Leroy Graves, who worked his way up from being a Williamsburg maintenance worker to being the leading upholstery conservator in North America and Europe.
