Abrams: “There’s no reason we can’t create a newspaper renaissance”

“Papers are everywhere — it’s not like it’s a new startup business,” Tribune chief innovation officer Lee Abrams said at a Society for News Design event. “We have to focus on rethinking. Think dramatic. Think urgency. Dramatic issues require dramatic solutions.” He added: “What’s inspiring is the 70% of people who, once they’re liberated … they tend to see the big picture and want to change. I’m pleasantly surprised at the number of people who want to move forward.”
