Are our Web leaders visionary or veterans?

Posted by 3 comments

If you’ve been working in Web journalism for a while, you’ve seen the evolution of leadership running the Web department – for better or worse.

While it’s a different strategy at every company, my conversations with other Web journalists tend to admit that management usually doesn’t “get it.” And, it tends to point up… to the leaders of the Web.

For years, I wanted to know the quality of leaders running the Web at news operations across the country… but I don’t want to be rude about it.

So, here’s a simple poll that keeps you anonymous. What category would you put your boss in? Are they a visionary or a veteran (aka, print pro).

Yes, we can argue about the variations, but I’m keeping it to these two categories and we’ll see what comes up.

Please pass this along to as many Web operations you know of!

    Thanks for this poll!

    I must admit I let out a sigh of frustration when I hear “new” “up and coming” “fresh” online ventures are being run by guys who don’t have twitter accounts.

    I voted for visionary, but then, it’s just me and my wife.

      Well, it’s not cheating if your wife considers you visionary!
