Fireside Chat with Tim Armstrong, CEO, Oath
and Harriet Jones, Managing Editor at WNPR.

Tim Armstrong, CEO of Oath

Tim Armstrong is CEO of Oath, a global digital and mobile company that reaches over 1 billion consumers and partners with the world’s leading global brands. Oath’s mission is to Build Brands People Love and the company owns 50+ media brands including Yahoo, AOL, HuffPost, TechCrunch, Tumblr, as well as adtech and distribution platforms that support thousands of partners across the globe. Oath launched in June 2017 as a Verizon owned company, following Verizon’s acquisition of AOL Inc in 2015, where Armstrong was Chairman and CEO.

Prior to Oath and AOL, Armstrong spent almost a decade at Google where he finished as President of the Americas and a member of the global operating committee.  Armstrong started in the media business after college by co-founding a newspaper in Boston, MA and then moving to Internet companies in Seattle, Silicon Valley, and New York. These companies included Starwave (creators of ESPN.com, NFL.com, NBA.com), Disney Internet Ventures, Snowball (NYSE Company), and America’s Health Network (acquired by News Corporation).  Armstrong also co-founded and seed-funded Associated Content (acquired by Yahoo) and Patch (acquired by AOL).

Armstrong serves on the boards of Priceline Group Inc (NASDAQ), Tech:NYC as co-founder, iDiverse as Chairman, Greenwich Academy for Girls, Connecticut College Athletic Club as co-founder, Waterside School and as a trustee for the US Olympic & Paralympic Foundation. He also serves as a loving husband and dad as well as lacrosse and basketball coach.  Armstrong is an avid New England sports fan and Massachusetts native.  He is part Camel (Connecticut College graduate) and part Trojan (Lawrence Academy graduate).

Harriet Jones, Managing Editor at WNPR

Harriet Jones reports on all aspects of the business world for WNPR. She’s covered such diverse issues as the threat to close Connecticut’s submarine base, the sub prime mortgage crisis and the impact of casinos on the state.

In 2011, she created WNPR’s Small Business Project as a way to tell stories about the companies that make up 90 percent of our economy, but often get overlooked in the media.

She is the winner of an Edward R. Murrow award for her reporting on Connecticut’s 2010 floods.

Harriet joined WNPR in October 2000 as Morning Edition producer and reporter. Born in Scotland, she worked for the BBC for much of her early career.

She was news director at Scotland’s largest commercial radio station, ScotFM, and was lucky enough to cover that country’s two biggest political events in 300 years – the referendum which delivered a new parliament, and the subsequent elections.

She has also taught broadcasting for the BBC at some of their international schools in Eastern Europe, delivering courses to journalists in Romania, Albania and Bosnia.

Harriet lives in Stonington with her husband, Bob Statchen, and their three children.
