 TRIBUNE BROADCASTING ACQUIRES KOSI-FM AND KEZW-AM IN DENVER
 CHICAGO, May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Tribune Broadcasting Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tribune Company (NYSE: TRB), has agreed to purchase the assets of radio stations KOSI-FM (101.1) and KEZW-AM (1430) in Denver from D & D Broadcasting, Inc. for $19.9 million in cash.
 In the winter Arbitron ratings report, KOSI ranked as Denver's third most listened-to station with its adult contemporary format. KEZW plays Big Band/nostalgia music. The transaction is subject to approval by the Federal Communications Commission.
 "This purchase is the first step in a long-term strategy to expand our Radio Group," said Wayne Vriesman, vice president/radio group for Tribune Broadcasting. "We are excited to build on KOSI's strong tradition of service to Denver's advertisers and listeners."
 Steven Dinetz, president of D & D Broadcasting, and Joe Davidman, executive vice president, stated, "We are confident that Tribune Radio Group will continue the tradition of excellence at KOSI/KEZW."
 Tribune Broadcasting also owns Denver's oldest TV station, KWGN-TV (Channel 2), which was acquired 26 years ago. Channel 2 is consistently the number one independent in the market and originates one of the industry's most successful prime time newscasts.
 Tribune Broadcasting, a pioneer in radio beginning in 1924, operates four radio stations: WGN-AM (720), Chicago; WQCD-FM (101.9), New York; KYMX-FM (96.1) and KCTC-AM (1320), Sacramento, Calif.; produces and syndicates radio programming through Tribune Radio Networks; and distributes news and information to U.S. radio stations through a unique fax wire service called Zapnews.
 Additionally, Tribune Broadcasting's six independent television stations reach 19 percent of U.S. households. Its reach will expand to 22 percent this June when the acquisition of a TV station in a seventh major market is complete. The company also produces and syndicates television programming through its subsidiary, Tribune Entertainment Company. Tribune Company also publishes seven newspapers, syndicates news and information, owns the Chicago Cubs baseball team and manufactures newsprint.
