emptyJuly 27, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The 163 year old once-glorious broadcasting company Tribune Co. that filed for bankruptcy back in 2008 is trying to bring back its lost glory, however with a difference. The Chief Executive officer of Tribune Co., Randy Michaels is once again in a mood to experiment with news shows. He recently shared his ideas with a reputed media source and revealed that the company is planning to launch a TV news cast that would be devoid of any anchor. The whole new idea though unconventional and might seem to be a little weird to many, is the new business tactics that Randy Michaels is trying to put to use to resurrect the dilapidated company.

Chief Executive Officer Randy Michaels said to the media source that the company will come up with a newscast in Houston that will have no anchors, no particular set or chairs like other news broadcast studios. According to him, in this new format of news broadcasting, there would not be anybody “standing in the way of the pictures”. The unconventional newscast would on the other hand have “great pictures and great writing”. However, many are skeptical about the success of the unconventional way of news telling.

This is not the only innovation that the CEO Randy Michaels is planning to introduce in Tribune Co. He is also looking forward to boost the revenue of the company by renting out a part of Tribune Co. headquarters for the shooting of a “Transformers” movie. The company will earn $200,000 from the renting. The plans of CEO Randy Michaels will affect news papers like Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune along with 23 local TV stations.
