Owen R. Youngman




Owen Youngman holds the Knight Chair in Digital Media Strategy at Northwestern University’s Medill School. He joined Medill as a tenured full professor in 2009 after a 37-year career at the Chicago Tribune, most recently as senior vice president/strategy and development.

At Medill, Youngman teaches in both the graduate and undergraduate programs. His courses focus on innovation, media economics, technology, and the changing cultural and media landscape, helping students develop strategies for succeeding in 21st Century journalism. He lectures and speaks widely on these topics and often appears on Chicago-area radio and television to discuss news developments and discuss their implications. In fall 2013, he will teach one of Northwestern’s first six massively open online courses (MOOCs) through University partner Coursera; in June 2013 he became one of the handful of public beta testers of Google’s wearable computing device, Glass.
