'Chicago Tribune' No Longer Printed In Chicago

The Sunday Chicago Tribune was the last to be printed at the Tribune’s long-time Freedom Center plant on the Chicago River. 

Starting on Monday, the publication will be printed in Schaumburg, Illinois. The Chicago printing plant will be replaced by a Bally’s casino. 

The old facility was to print 160,000 copies of the Sunday Chicago Tribune and 49,000 copies of the Sunday Chicago Sun-Times.

The Sun-Times is also moving its printing to Schaumburg. 

The Monday Tribune will be the first edition in this paper’s 170-year history not to be printed in Chicago.

“For more than four decades, the Freedom Center has played a pivotal role for the Chicago Tribune,” says Par Ridder, the newspaper’s general manager, according to the Tribune. “However, it was built in and for a different time. Now, we look forward to moving to a modern production facility in Schaumburg, which is a better fit for our current and future needs.”
