Soon After Damaging NY Times Piece About Frat House Culture at Tribune Co., Tribune Exec Sends Email with Explicit Videos

Oct 13, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Soon after Tribune was the focus of a damaging New York Times article about the frat house atmosphere at the company since it was bought by billionaire Sam Zell, a top executive allegedly sent a company-wide email with links to off-color videos, reports Phil Rosenthal in ChicagoBreakingBusiness.com, a Website owned by Tribune.

Lee Abrams, who is the chief innovation officer of Tribune, allegedly labeled one of the videos "Sluts," which showed a gyrating woman who appeared to pour liquor on her naked breasts, the story says.

Abrams sent out another company-wide email on Tuesday that apologized "to everyone who was offended" by the first email, the story says.

The first email prompted complaints to Tribune’s human resources department from Chicago Tribune editor Gerould Kern and other employees, the article notes.

Abrams is a long-time radio industry consultant who joined Tribune in 2008, according to the story.

  1. Good news for underpaid or mistreated women at Tribune. Run, don’t walk, to the nearest lawyer, who will take your case on a no-fee contingent basis, because no jury would refuse to award damages against these frat boys.
