Bugaboos

Michael Atmore is dancing as fast as he can. As editorial director of Fairchild Publications' weekly Footwear News (20,000-circulation), Atmore also oversees the six-times-a-
year WSA Show Dailies (in concert with the World Shoe Association) and the bi-annual WWD Accessories (along with Footwear News' corporate sibling and Fairchild flagship WWD.)
Footwear News and its ancillary products cover all of the markets tied to shoes: wholesale, retail, design, ready-to-wear collections and accessories markets. Atmore handles a lot
of content and steers a lot of stories, but PR people are not as cooperative as he might like.
