Lee Abrams joins Tribune

XM it seems can't catch a break: first, AOL Radio dumps them for CBS, and now Lee Abrams - who has been with XM since 1998 - has jumped to Tribune as Chief Innovation Officer (no, I am not making this up), where he will report to Randy Michaels, who is Tribune's chief executive of broadcasting and interactive.

Abrams, who is a Chicago native, once worked for album-rocker WLUP-FM, and is credited for spearheading the format. Abrams also gave Chicago radio legend Steve Dahl and nationwide radio star Howard Stern their first jobs in broadcasting.
