Jean Taylor


Star Tribune Board of Directors




Jean Taylor, working with publisher Mike Klingensmith, is focused on building a robust revenue model that will support journalism. Her father, Glen, bought the media company in 2014, and she was elevated to chair in late 2018. She says the Star Tribune is “transforming into a digital majority business,” which means in the coming years most of the revenue will flow from digital editorial subscriptions and advertising. To support that shift, she brought four independent directors onto the board in early 2019 who she says have experience in creating growth and developing digital businesses.
