    its

    "Now they were the top-billed acts, the stars of the stage, the recipients of standing ovations. Even the hostile press coverage was rewarding in its way." [From The Guardian.]

    The possessive "its" refers to "the hostile press coverage" in the above context, doesn't it?

    Thank you.
