Big time newspapers in Chicago is the Chicago Sun-Times and the Chicago Tribune; obviously competitors to one another. But what makes the Chicago Tribune stands out the most is a fairly young edition of its newspaper the Red Eye.
Going to classes in college, I'd often seen the paper around and also on the street vendors for only 25 cents. I opted to get the one if college since it was free and was very interested in reading it even more that the Tribune and Sun-Times itself.
The Redeye is mainly an 'urban' newspaper I believe to target the younger audience and they had successfully reached them. Not only were the students in school reading them but people on the street as well. The Redeye is only has only a few pages covering local, national and international news-- as well the local celebrities, events, weather restaurants and hotspots in town.
It also has the classifieds, crossword puzzle section and my absolute favorite in the last couple of pages-- brief gossip news on celebrities.
Although I still read the Sun-Times every once in a while, the newspaper I prefer the most is the Redeye more handy to read on the train or bus as the reader don't have to sort through one hundred pages to find what they're looking for.
I love the Redeye and hope it was the potential to stick around for a very long time.
