Christian H. Ottenheim

Program Director
Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR)
Class 16

Christian started and developed, and later became the Head of “DR Music and Radio”, which consists of three radio stations – P3, P6 Beat, and P7 Mix. He oversees the music archives, social and online presence and various music, digital and video formats as well as all related events.

In his previous role as Head of Radio and Online Content at the national radio station P3, Christian was responsible for innovation and digital transformation, a position he took after being an editor and responsible for content in current affairs, sport, and entertainment. 

Christian comes to the Berlin School to learn how best to adapt to the rapid changes in the dynamic media world. “I spend a lot of time thinking about how we stay relevant to the young talent, how we keep creating original content and how we keep innovating the way we produce, distribute, brand and promote our formats, platforms and content. I believe these challenges require us to think differently about leadership and I hope that through the EMBA I will gain insights in the way we best build our organizations to meet these challenges.”

Christian holds a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the Danish School of Journalism. He studied French Language, History and Culture at the Paris-Sorbonne University, as well as Arabic Language, History and Culture at the University of Copenhagen. During his studies, Christian completed an internship at the DR, where in 2002 he began working as a journalist, host and producer.
