The Tribune Co. saga took another turn Tuesday with the declaration by embattled CEO Randy Michaels that he has not resigned. “I work here today and I’m still working,” the Chicago Tribune quoted him as saying.
Both the Tribune and the New York Times reported that the board of Tribune Co. was expected to call for Michaels’ resignation amid what the Tribune called “a swirl of controversy over disclosures of sexist and boorish behavior among Michaels and his hand-picked team of executives.”
A statement issued by the company after the board meeting made no reference to Michaels’ expected ouster. “Tribune’s board of directors is focused on filing the company’s plan of reorganization this Friday and has no comment on any other issue,” the statement said.
