Brian Kirwin started this petition to Tribune

The cities of Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Portsmouth do not want their local newspaper to be an out-of-town newspaper.  The owners of the Virginian-Pilot, contrary to recent promises, are moving its newsroom to Newport News.

The local paper must remain a local paper.  Local coverage will shrink and the quality of news coverage will suffer.  This seems like a strategy to replace our local newspaper with the peninsula Daily Press with Daily Press offices in Newport News and very little attention to the cities that actually subscribe to the Virginian-Pilot today.

We urge Tribune Publishing to keep Virginian-Pilot reporters working in VIrginian-Pilot cities and retain an office presence in its coverage area.
