Tribune Co. said Monday that Chairman and CEO Dennis FitzSimons is recovering from “successful prostate cancer surgery” performed earlier in the day.
Tribune said FitzSimons expects to return to work full time before the end of August.
“My prognosis is excellent, and I look forward to a quick and full recovery,” FitzSimons said in a statement. “Tribune has a strong, experienced management team that will continue to execute on our performance improvement plan during my absence. I will be engaged with them in that process.”
