Here's a brief Reuters interview with Gerould Kern, the new editor of the diminishing Chicago Tribune. Addressing the upcoming round of job cuts, Kern allows that the Trib will have to do more (it sounds like a lot more) with less, but if it's on its toes should be able to do a "fabulous job."

And he protests the rap he's gotten for promoting the byline count as a measure of productivity among Tribune Company reporters. "Just one data point," he says, "and, frankly, probably not the most valuable."
