Tribune Co. Executive Abrams Resigns After “Offensive” E-mail

Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Lee Abrams, the chief innovation officer at Tribune Co., resigned after he was suspended for distributing an e-mail with video links employees found “offensive,” according to a company statement to employees.

“Effective immediately, Lee will no longer be an employee of Tribune,” Chief Executive Officer Randy Michaels said in the statement. Abrams was suspended earlier this week, Michaels said. A spokesman didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail and phone call for comment.

Tribune Co., the Chicago-based owner of the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times and cable and broadcast television outlets, has been operating under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection since December 2008, a year after it was taken private in a buyout led by real estate investor Sam Zell.
