Tribune Co., owner of the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and six other daily papers, emerged from bankruptcy, four years after a doomed leveraged buyout by billionaire Sam Zell led to Chapter 11 proceedings.

Distributions to creditors have been initiated, the Chicago-based company said Monday. As part of its exit from bankruptcy, Tribune Co. closed on a new $1.1 billion term loan and a $300 million revolving credit line.

The company is now in a wide-ranging sale of assets including stakes in the Food Network and CareerBuilder Inc., newspapers including the Times and the Tribune as well as real estate, said Lance Vitanza, managing director at CRT Capital Group LLC.
