Men and Women in Daily Newspaper Management: Their Characteristics and Advice to Future Managers.
Brown, Charlene J.; And Others
To learn more about the characteristics of daily newspaper managers, a mail survey of 558 top managers at 197 newspapers was conducted. To add to the information about the relatively small number of women newspaper managers, a telephone survey of 74 women managers at 67 newspapers was also undertaken. An analysis of their responses led to the following conclusions and observations: approximately 2.4% of the top-level managers in the daily press are women; the typical top-level manager is white, protestant, in his late forties, married with at least one child, and has a college degree; both men and and women were equally satisfied with their jobs; women received lower salaries than men, regardless of the size of their newspapers or their jobs; few women were members of any media-related women's organization; in the newspapers which offer management training programs, 80% of the trainees were males and 96% were white.
