Tribune Media Company president and CEO Peter Liguori said the company has embraced the changing media environment while announcing the rebrand Monday.

“In the last year, we have executed a strategy designed to embrace a rapidly changing media environment,” Ligouri said. “We doubled the size of our broadcast group, re-launched our national cable network, WGN America, with high-quality original programming, and expanded our digital businesses that power some of the world's leading media brands. The result is a rich and diverse portfolio of media properties and the birth today of Tribune Media Company.”
