Michael Ferro is now in charge at Tribune Publishing (TPUB) and all that the Chicago-based newspaper company controls. Less than a month after stunning t he media world by buying his way into Tribune Publishing and becoming the company's largest shareholder and non-executive chairman of the Board of Directors, Ferro today ousted the company's controversial CEO Jack Griffin, who had been in the post less than two years. Griffin oversaw the spinoff of Trib Publishing from Tribune Media Co. (TRCO), which controls the broadcasting properties that had been part of the former Tribune Co. Ferro today tapped a familiar (to Ferro anyway) face to replace Griffin — Justin Dearborn.
