How Management Training Relates to Newspaper Editors' Professional Commitment.
Senat, Tracy C.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether increased amounts of management training for newspaper editors correlated positively with higher levels of professional commitment. Subjects, 313 (of 500) newspaper editors working at 123 U.S. daily newspapers that were part of the Gannett, Knight-Ridder, or Scripps-Howard chains, responded to a questionnaire that dealt with amount of management training experience, level of commitment, and various demographics. Results indicated that: (1) the numbers of management training experiences correlated positively with professional commitment levels; and (2) management training and salary were the top predictors of professional commitment. (Three tables of data are included; 50 references are attached.) (RS)
