A Letters From The Publisher Of The Baltimore Sun

December 09, 2008

Dear Reader,

Our parent company, Tribune, and its individual media properties, which include The Baltimore Sun, have filed to restructure debt obligations under the protection of Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

Tribune is continuing to operate its media businesses, including its newspapers, television stations and Web sites. While this financial restructuring occurs at Tribune, The Baltimore Sun remains dedicated to providing you with the level of service and news coverage you've come to expect from us every day. As we have for the past 171 years, The Baltimore Sun Media Group will continue to serve both readers and advertisers with the highest quality news and information through our portfolio of print publications and Web sites. The Baltimore Sun Media Group continues to be Maryland's largest news-gathering operation, and a total work force of 1,300 company employees remains dedicated to serving this community.

Readership studies prove that our print and online publications provide the best reach and responsiveness for advertisers seeking to promote their businesses to the greater Baltimore market. We are Baltimore's media leader, reaching more than 1.1 million market adults each week through The Baltimore Sun in print and online, and we are constantly innovating to reach you in new ways. On Monday, we launched BaltimoreBreakingNews.com, the definitive one-stop source of breaking news for Baltimore and the state. In April, we launched b, the free daily targeted to young adults in their 20s and 30s. Our flagship Web site, baltimoresun.com, has experienced record page views this past year.

The Baltimore Sun Media Group will continue to play a vital role in the communities we serve, and we thank you for your loyal readership and support.

Timothy E. Ryan

Publisher, The Baltimore Sun
