Gregory Favre learned early that transformational change in journalism was a fact of life. When he was 8 years old, it was his mission to fold the newspapers at the paper his dad owned in Bay St. Louis, Miss. And, according to Favre, no one ever folded newspapers better. When he was 10, his dad bought a machine to take over the folding. Young Gregory was distraught. Then he had a revelation: The skills that made him the best folder also made him the best machine operator.
“Change is inevitable,” Favre says. “You have to embrace change.”
