Tribune CEO Dennis J. FitzSimons is dropping in on the L.A. Times tomorrow for a "town hall" meeting with employees. (With the cutbacks I think it's more of a neighborhood than a town at First and Spring these days, but anyway.) From the invitation to the staff:
Dennis will have a few remarks about the Tribune stock tender offer and will answer questions.
Because of seating limitations in the Chandler Auditorium, we will be able to accommodate only about 350 employees at the meeting. If you want to attend this meeting, please check with your manager. Then you must RSVP by replying to this e-mail with your name, department and extension by 3 p.m. on Monday, June 26. The first 350 employees who RSVP will be contacted to confirm their participation in the meeting.
Today's Fortune has a piece on the Tribune-Chandler feud: "Did you ever get good advice from a sworn enemy? Did you grit your teeth and take it, or could you just not bear to give him the satisfaction? That's the position Tribune Co. CEO Dennis FitzSimons is in now."
