CHICAGO , September 1, 2011 () – The Chicago Tribune is replacing its newsstand tabloid version with a traditional broadsheet newspaper.

The newspaper reported ( ) Wednesday that eliminating the tabloid will streamline operations, reduce costs and let it focus on the broadsheet edition and digital initiatives. The company says 90 percent of subscribers receive the full-size edition, which was expanded in June.

Tribune editor and senior vice president Gerry Kern says the Tribune's recent enhancements "are best displayed in the larger page afforded by the broadsheet format."

Home-delivery subscribers still received Tribune's broadsheet. The tabloid debuted in January 2009 and Friday will be its last day on newsstands.

Tribune Co., which owns the Chicago Tribune, entered bankruptcy protection three years ago and is working with creditors on competing plans to reorganize its finances.
