The New Chicago Tribune: News, Sports And "Live!"?

The Chicago Tribune will keep its full name but condense the number of sections from five to three, according to an all-but-final prototype of the redesigned paper that was shown to staffers Tuesday.

The paper's new look will hit newsstands Sept. 29, and a major marketing push is expected to start next week.

Large visuals dominate the front page, leaving room for fewer stories, according to the staffers who saw the prototype, but who asked their names not be used because they aren't authorized to speak publicly.

The front section will contain business and local news, which currently are separate sections, as well as national and foreign news. A sports section and a features section called "Live!" will round out the paper. Sunday's Perspective section will be cut.
