The Chicago Tribune has reportedly laid off about a dozen staffers in its newsroom. The layoffs come a week after the paper's publisher warned of "rightsizing activities" at Chicago Tribune Media Group, which includes the paper and its RedEye edition, plus Chicago Magazine.

The parent Tribune Company is operating under bankruptcy protection as owner Sam Zell tries to renegotiate about $13 billion in debt.
