On today’s News Wrap:  Tronc, Inc., the controversial Chicago based media company that owns several newspapers around the country including the Baltimore Sun and The Daily News, is once again making headlines.  This week Tronc made dramatic cuts to the news room at The NY Daily News, laying off over 90 employees.  Politico media reporter, Jason Schwartz is on the line from Arlington, Va. to discuss the implications of those cuts on local journalism in New York City and around the country. 

Later on in the program, AP White House reporter, Darlene Superville speaks with us about some of the big stories in a week that has seen yet another tsunami of headlines from the White House, and various investigations about the Trump administration that are on-going.
