Tribune Co. CEO Randy Michaels
Rumblings are the noise may be too much for Michaels to ignore himself. Michaels' future with the company will be discussed by Tribune Co.'s Board of Directors today, with both the Tribune and New York Times citing anonymous sources as saying that Michaels may tender his resignation from the company to the Board directly.
The reports state that the Tribune Board has lost faith in Michaels in the wake of the NYT piece and the resignation of chief innovation officer Lee Abrams for sending out an email that many Tribune employees found offensive after the exposé's publication. The Board, according to reports, feels that a change at the top is necessary to move the company forward and expedite its emergence from bankruptcy.
