Its shares are set to start regular trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "TPUB" on August 5. Tribune, with 42 local TV stations and the WGN America cable channel, will operate under the name Tribune Media Co. Shareholders of Tribune's Class A and Class B common stock and warrants will receive a quarter of a share of Tribune Publishing for each Tribune share they own.
