NBC10 Philadelphia/WCAU and Telemundo62/WWSI and The Philadelphia Tribune Media group are announcing a new collaborative partnership in the Greater Philadelphia region.
Under the new partnership, The Philadelphia Tribune and NBC10/Telemundo62 agree to share news and community resources to better serve the region.
“We are excited about this new partnership with NBC10 and Telemundo62,” said Robert W.

Founded in 1884 by Christopher James Perry, Sr., The Philadelphia Tribune is America’s oldest and the Greater Philadelphia region’s largest daily audited newspaper serving the African-American community.
Today, The Tribune is published five days a week and maintains a website presence at www.phillytrib.com. In addition to the newspaper itself, the company publishes Tribune Magazine; Entertainment Now, an arts and entertainment review; Sojourner, a visitor’s guide to Philadelphia; and the Learning Key, an educational supplement directed to students, parents, and teachers, highlighting schools, programs of special interest and student achievement. Since 1995, the Tribune has been honored with the John B. Russwurm award seven times for “Best Newspaper” in America.
NBC10 and Telemundo62 provide 55 hours of locally-produced news programming every week in English and Spanish and serves nearly six million viewers throughout Greater Philadelphia, the Lehigh Valley, South Jersey and Delaware.
