Welcome to olsenebright.com
Hello, my name is Olsen Ebright, and I run Newsworthy LLC, a small media consulting group based in Los Angeles. I spent most of my career as a digital journalist and manager working in local TV news. Nowadays, I help clients navigate the media world and leverage the power of digital.
17 years of experience as a journalist and media executive
Olsen Ebright is a media consultant and principal for Newsworthy LLC. He’s worked in local TV news for 17 years, including eight years leading the KTLA digital team in Los Angeles, growing traffic to become the most-visited local TV news website in the country and launching KTLA+, the station’s first-ever smart TV app, garnering 30 million midroll impressions a month. In addition to managing the station’s written content team, he led the show development of 15.5 weekly hours of original streaming-only video programming.
He also served as a digital news producer at KNBC, KNTV and WCMH, in addition to running a video production and web development company. He’s won multiple awards for digital journalism, including a Sigma Delta Chi Award from the Society of Professional Journalists for breaking news coverage.
He grew up in the suburbs of Columbus, Ohio, and graduated with a public relations degree from Kent State University, where he won two back-to-back intramural broomball championships. He also co-founded the university’s dodgeball club. He’s an avid golfer and was once called the “karaoke king of Los Feliz” by a stranger.
In 2016, he had a sandwich named after him at the Greyhound Bar & Grill in L.A.’s Highland Park neighborhood. It was $11, came with one side, and was very popular.
