Greising, an award-winning journalist and 1982 graduate of DePauw University, recently left the Chicago Tribune to join the upstart, Internet-based Chicago News Cooperative.

Greising, who is seen in a photo accompanying the Times' story, adds, "This new work isn't about trying to get even with anybody. It's about creating an alternative way to do good journalism."
