Tribune, Gannett heading to sharing a bed?

Are Tribune Publishing and Gannett tap-dancing their way to Tribune swallowing Gannett?

Tribune Publishing began in 1847 as the Chicago Tribune. Its wire service at one time was called the Knight-Ridder Tribune before KR went belly up.

Depending how you count them, Tribune Publishing has 31 newspapers.

Gannet was born in 1923 in Elmira, New York from a newspaper business that started in 1906. It has been acquiring newspapers and TV stations for more than a century.
