The Tribune is an Indian English-language daily newspaper published from Amritsar, Bathinda, Chandigarh, New Delhi, Jalandhar and Ludhiana. It was founded on 2 February 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan), by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising five persons as trustees.[2] It is a major Indian newspaper with a worldwide circulation.[3][4][5][6] In India, it is among the leading English daily for Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, and the Union Territory of Chandigarh.[7]

Dr. Harish Khare was appointed Editor-in-Chief of the Tribune Group of newspapers on 1 June 2015,[8] serving until 15 March 2018.[9]

The Tribune has two sister publications: Dainik Tribune (in Hindi) and Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi). R. K. Singh is the Editor of Dainik Tribune and Sahitya Akademi Award winner and prominent Punjabi playwright Swaraj Bir Singh is the Editor of the Punjabi Tribune. The Internet Edition of The Tribune was launched in July 1998, and the Internet editions of the Punjabi Tribune and Dainik Tribune were launched on 16 August 2010.[10] The Tribune has now social media accounts Facebook [], Twitter [] and Instagram [] and YouTube Channel [].

All three newspapers are published by the Tribune Trust. Mr Narinder Nath Vohra is the President of the Tribune Trust, which comprises Justice S. S. Sodhi, Lt. Gen S. S. Mehta (retd.), Mr Naresh Mohan, and Mr. Gurbachan Jagat as trustees.

The Tribune has had Kali Nath Roy, Prem Bhatia, Hari Jai Singh, H.K. Dua, and Raj Chengappa among others, as its editors-in-chief in the past.

Similar to most Indian Newspapers, The Tribune receives the majority of its revenue from advertisements over subscriptions [1]. The Group gains substantial revenue from its Newspaper Advertising Business selling Jacket Ads, Front Page Display Ad Innovations to premium advertisers and offers affordable classified advertising options to local businesses and individuals.
