I was not getting any responses to my job inquiries, when a friend recommended I contact Michelle for help. It was the best decision I had made in my search for a new job. She completely redesigned my work experiences into a format which was clear, concise, filled with pertinent details and quantifiable achievements.

Have a wonderful New Years Michelle! The move surprised the journalism community, which had expected Munsey to purchase the Tribune. The Herald management informed its staff of the sale in a brief note posted on a bulletin board; reading it, one reporter remarked "Jonah just swallowed the whale". Reid, angered, called her husband "the most independent-minded man I have ever met", to which Time replied that "it is Mrs.
Reid who often helps that independent mind make itself up". Financially, the paper continued to stay out of the red, but long-term trouble was on the horizon. The notes amounted to a mortgage on the Herald Tribune , which prevented the newspaper from acquiring bank loans or securing public financing. Financial advisors at the newspaper advised the Reids to convert the notes into equity , which the family resisted. Big beats in Europe these days are not very likely.
Jones—have argued that the Times , faced with newsprint rationing during World War II, decided to increase its news coverage at the expense of its advertising, while the Herald Tribune chose to run more ads, trading short-term profit for long-term difficulties. The Times lured many readers away from the Tribune , and these readers stayed with The Times after the war into the Nineteen-fifties and Sixties".
Between and , advertising space in the Times increased from The Herald Tribune always had at least a dozen correspondents in the field,  the most famous of whom was Homer Bigart. Allowing wire services to write "big picture" stories, Bigart—who covered the Anzio Campaign , the Battle of Iwo Jima and the Battle of Okinawa —focused instead on writing about tactical operations conducted by small units and individual soldiers, in order to "bring a dimension of reality and understanding to readers back home".
By the end of the conflict, the Herald Tribune had enjoyed some of its best financial years in its history. The Reid family was long accustomed to resolve shortfalls at the newspaper with subsidies from their fortune, rather than improved business practices, seeing the paper "as a hereditary possession to be sustained as a public duty rather than developed as a profit-making opportunity".
Although the overall percentage of advertising for the paper was higher than it was in , the Times was still higher: Ogden Reid died early in , making Helen Reid leader of the Tribune in name as well as in fact.
While both papers had about the same level of profits between and , the Times was heavily reinvesting money in its plant and hiring new employees. The Times also began to push the Tribune hard in suburbs, where the Tribune had previously enjoyed a commanding lead. At the urging of Goldstein, Times editors added featured to appeal to commuters, expanded and in some cases subsidized home delivery and paid retail display allowances—"kickbacks, in common parlance"—to the American News Company , the controller of many commuter newsstands, to achieve prominent display.
The newspaper fell into the red in The paper distinguished itself in the coverage of the Korean War ; Bigart and Marguerite Higgins , who engaged in a fierce rivalry, shared a Pulitzer Prize with Chicago Daily News correspondent Keyes Beech and three other reporters in Whitelaw Reid was gradually replaced by his brother, Ogden R.
Reid , nicknamed "Brown", to take charge of the paper. As president and publisher of the paper, Brown Reid tried to interject an energy his brother lacked and reach out to new audiences. In that spirit, the Tribune ran a promotion called "Tangle Towns", where readers were invited to unscramble the names of jumbled up town and city names in exchange for prizes. The Reids, who had by now turned their mortgage into stock, began seeking buyers to infuse the Tribune with cash, turning to John Hay "Jock" Whitney , whose family had a long association with the Reids.
Whitney initially left management of the newspaper to Walter Thayer, a longtime advisor. Thayer also looked for new leadership for the newspaper. In —the same year Whitney returned to New York—the Tribune hired John Denson, a Newsweek editor and native of Louisiana who was "a critical mass of intensity and irascibility relieved by interludes of amiability.
Denson "swept away the old front-page architecture, essentially vertical in structure"  and laid out stories horizontally, with unorthodox and sometimes cryptic headlines; large photos and information boxes. Denson also had a heavy-handed approach to the newsroom that led some to question his stability, and led him to clash with Thayer.
Daily circulation at the Tribune reached an all-time high of , in November, The New York newspaper industry came to an abrupt halt on December 8, when the local of the International Typographical Union , led by Bert Powers, walked off the job, leading to the day —63 New York City newspaper strike.
The ITU, known as "Big Six," represented 3, printers, as well as workers at printshops and 28 publications in the city  but, like other newspaper unions, had taken a backseat to the Newspaper Guild which had the largest membership among the unions in contract negotiations. New technology was also a concern for management and labor. Teletypesetting TTS , introduced in the s, was already used by The Wall Street Journal and promised to be far more efficient than the linotype machines still used by the Tribune and most other New York newspapers.
ITU was not necessarily opposed to TTS—it trained its members on the new equipment  —but wanted to control the rate at which automation occurred; assurances that TTS operators would be paid at the same rates as linotype workers; that at least a portion of the savings from publishers would go toward union pension plans to allow funding to continue as the workforce and union membership declined and guarantees that no printer would lose their job as a result of the new technology.
Whitney, however, remained committed to the Tribune , and promoted James Bellows to editor of the newspaper. He is the editor of two collections of creative writing pedagogy, Teaching Writing Creatively and Genre by Example: Writing What We Teach , and he has been active in all four genres.
