CHICAGO — Tribune Co. is suspending a top executive without pay over an inappropriate e-mail sent to staff.

In a memo to employees Wednesday, CEO Randy Michaels says Chief Innovation Officer Lee Abrams is being suspended while the company investigates an e-mail message he sent staff Monday that contained links to raunchy video clips. Radio industry veteran Abrams was appointed to the position in 2008 and put in charge of print, broadcast and online innovation.

Michaels is stopping short of saying whether Abrams could lose his job, but he is calling the e-mail a "serious mistake that can't be tolerated."

The suspension comes as Tribune, owner of the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune, is struggling to win approval for its reorganization plan nearly two years after it filed for bankruptcy protection.
