Following the success of Red Eye (and its nemesis, Red Streak) The Tribune Co. is launching a "commuter tabloid daily" in New York, to be called amNewYork. The Red papers' success has already spawned similar papers in Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, as well as smaller cities like Boise and Topeka.
