Tribune Content Agency (TCA) is a syndication company owned by Tronc.
TCA had previously been known as the Chicago Tribune Syndicate, the Chicago Tribune New York News Syndicate (CTNYNS), Tribune Company Syndicate, and Tribune Media Services.
TCA is headquartered in Chicago, and had offices in various American cities (Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Queensbury, New York; Arlington, Texas; Santa Monica, California), the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Hong Kong.
Joseph Medill Patterson founded the Chicago Tribune Syndicate in 1918, managed by Arthur Crawford. In 1933, Patterson (who was then based in New York, running the Tribune's sister paper, the New York Daily News), launched the Chicago Tribune-Daily News Syndicate, Inc. (also known as the Chicago Tribune-New York News Syndicate and the Tribune-New York (Daily) News Syndicate).
On June 12, 2014, Tribune Media Services was merged into Gracenote. After the 2016 split of Tribune Company assets between Tribune Media and Tribune Publishing, now Tronc, Gracenote went to Tribune Media (who would sell it to Nielsen in that year) while newspaper syndication content remained with Tronc under the name Tribune Content Agency.
TCA distributes media products, such as news, comic strips, television listings and other information services to publications across the United States, Canada, and other countries in a variety of languages, for both print and web syndication.
Its content delivery site is subscription service for newspapers and other media channels. The content provided includes comics, puzzles, games, editorial cartoons, as well as feature content packages. The content delivery site also marketed content from other sources, such as U.S. News & World Report. The service had a partnership with The McClatchy Company providing multimedia content and info graphics worldwide.
TCA also offered products and services for niche markets via TCA Specialty Products.
