Editors confess their greatest fears

Some break out in a sweat at night. Others jump out of bed in the morning worrying about the state of their newspapers. With circulation dropping and readers finding different outlets for the news, editors have plenty of worries.

What are their biggest fears?

“I worry about the future of our product because of all the changes going on in the business.” - David Boardman, executive editor of the Seattle Times

“If there is a bad headline on the front page.” - Glenn Proctor, executive editor of the Richmond Times-Dispatch

“That we are not changing things fast enough, are not seeing what the readers want.” - Janet Weaver, executive editor of The Tampa Tribune
