I gotta like this memo to Tribune Company staff from Lee Abrams, their new chief innovation officer (as purloined by Poynter’s Jim Romenesko).
Some great ideas, but most of all, making sure the message is short and sweet (unlike the memo). If Abrams’ words follow through with actions, we could be seeing a resurgence of the Tribune as a force to reckon with in the Chicago market.
For the Trib’s sake, let’s hope they’re listening. If not, Abrams could simply become become the Col. Kurtz of the Tribune empire. A sad fate.
