Leading a news media business has never been simple, but success in today’s increasingly turbulent and competitive environment requires entrepreneurial leadership distinct from other behavioural forms of leadership. This paper reflects on both entrepreneurship and leadership in order to develop a construct of entrepreneurial leadership in the context of the contemporary news media industry. Then, drawing on original data collected through the 21-question World Newsmedia Innovation Study conducted in 11 languages, it considers the relationship between the the firm’s entrepreneurial orientation and the perceived performance of the organisation’s leadership. Findings provide insights into how entrepreneurial leaders influence perceptions of organisational culture and future success. It also suggests that news media CEOs have work to do to gain the confidence of their staff, including their executive teams.
