Newspaper Association Chief Optimistic

Being president and CEO of the Newspaper Association of America is not a job for the fainthearted.

Your mission includes lobbying for, speaking for and galvanizing an industry that, while it is the press, hasn't gotten very much good press, not for a long time.

It's been fashionable for years now to write off newspapers as relics of a vanished era, as dinosaurs who are too dumb to know they are supposed to die, as orphans who have no place in the glitzy, fast-moving digital age.
