The former publisher of the Los Angeles Times has landed -- back in Chicago, according to Tower Ticker's Phil Rosenthal: 

David D. Hiller,a former publisher of Tribune Co.'s Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times, has been appointed president and chief executive of the Chicago-based nonprofit McCormick Foundation. Hiller succeeds David L. Grange, a former U.S. general who is set to retire at the end of next month after a decade with the foundation. Grange has been its president and CEO for nearly four years. A charitable trust formed in 1955 after the death of Robert R. McCormick, the long-time publisher and editor of the Chicago Tribune, the McCormick Foundation has long been entwined with Tribune Co., his other major legacy.
