Sam Guzik is a journalist and digital strategist.

I am a product director at Hearst Newspapers with ownership of a portfolio of products that cultivate engaged audiences, deliver meaningful subscriber experiences and help journalists tell great stories.

I am passionate about building a sustainable future for local news. I’ve demonstrated results creating innovative, engaging and impactful journalism — and thinking about the business model to support that work. My career includes a broad range of experience that includes product management, strategic foresight, scenario forecasting, audience engagement and leadership in legacy news organizations.

I am a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and the NYU Stern School of Business.


Let’s talk

My network looks too much like me — and I’d like to change that. I’ve set aside time to network, review resumes and talk about careers in journalism inside and outside the newsroom (e.g., product management, strategy) with folks from communities under-represented in media.
