A free local newspaper in Portland, Oregon.
The Tribune is published every Tuesday and Friday. It began publication on February 9, 2001. Home delivery circulation is estimated at 120,0001. The newspaper is owned by multi-millionaire Dr. Robert B. Pamplin, Jr.
The Tribune aims to be a mainstream newspaper focusing on local and regional coverage. Some of Dr. Pamplin's other businesses, including Pamplin Music (a Christian record company), and the Christian Supply bookstore chain, would seem to indicate a politically conservative outlook.
Significant competitors include the mainstream daily The Oregonian, and the alternative Willamette Week.
