               Re:     TEGNA Inc.
                       File No. 001-06961

Dear Mr. Kirman:

1. We understand that TEGNA has authorized a third party, Tusk Strategies,
Inc., to make
   certain communications to various media outlets regarding a lawsuit against
   General. We believe such communications constitute a solicitation within the
meaning of
   Rule 14a-1(l)(1)(iii). In stating this belief, we note that the proxy rules
apply to
   communications that may constitute a step in a chain of communications
designed ultimately
   to result in the procurement, withholding, or revocation of a proxy.
Accordingly, please file
   this communication, and any similar communications made, pursuant to Rule
   Please refer to Question B.14 in the July 2001 Supplement to the Division of
   Finance's Manual of Publicly Available Telephone Interpretations for
analogous guidance.

2. Notwithstanding your authority to communicate factual information regarding
the pending
   lawsuit to shareholders, we believe that communications made on behalf of
   referring to "alleg[ed] insider trading" may be misleading in light of the
fact that the lawsuit
   alleges violations of Section 16. When you file these materials, please
clarify the scope of
   the lawsuit.

                                               *   *   *

      Please direct any questions to me at (202) 551-7951. You may also contact
Duchovny, Special Counsel, at (202) 551-3619.
