Tribune Exec Resigns After Email Flap
Chief Innovation Officer Lee Abrams was suspended earlier this week after distributing a video with topless women.
Tribune Co. Chief Innovation Officer Lee Abrams has resigned, Crain's Chicago Business reported Friday.
Abrams was suspended without pay on Wednesday following criticism for sending around an email containing a video of topless and gyrating women.
Wrote Tribune Company's chief executive officer Randy Michaels in a memo to staff, "Lee recognizes that the video was in extremely bad taste and that it offended employees - he has also apologized publicly. He reiterated those feelings again to me privately today. But, this is the kind of serious mistake that can't be tolerated; we intend to address it promptly and forcefully."
Just a few days earlier, a New York Times article detailed other misogynistic actions of executives at the media company.
Abrams issued an apology Wednesday for his "inappropriate email."
