Angus Frame
Contract Lecturer

Angus Frame graduated from the Ryerson School of Journalism in 1996 and was a student on the RRJ Masthead course in his final year of study. He went directly from Ryerson to a summer position at the Globe and Mail and spent the bulk of the next 20 years working in a variety of positions at the newspaper.

Angus’ first few years at the Globe were spent on the night copy desk, where he edited stories, designed pages and wrote headlines for every section of the paper. In 1998, he became an assignment editor in the Report on Business and managed a team of 17 reporters working in both international and domestic bureaus.

With the rise of online journalism, Angus moved to globeandmail.com in 2000, becoming the Deputy Editor of a news site that had just introduced breaking news. He ran a small team of four business reporters who filed stories around the clock and served as the site’s overall editor when required.

On Sept. 10, 2001, Angus became the Editor of globeandmail.com, a position he held for the next 8 years. During his tenure, Angus led the digital newsroom’s coverage of the 9/11 terror attacks, the U.S.-led war on Iraq, multiple federal elections and other major news events. He also led the introduction of many new features to the site: video, reader comments, multi-media features and more. During his tenure, the site won multiple National Newspaper Awards, two Emmy awards and saw audience growth go from 400K unique visitors a month to more than 4M.

In 2009, Angus moved from the newsroom to the executive offices at the Globe and became Vice President, Digital Media. As the most senior executive responsible for the Globe’s digital properties, Angus led a rapid expansion of the Globe’s mobile presence, introduced a new, subscription element to the site and delivered a comprehensive redesign.

Angus left the Globe in December, 2015 to become the Vice President, Strategy at a new Toronto company called TribalScale. TribalScale works with other companies to develop their digital strategies and bring their products to life. As VP, Strategy Angus works with a variety of major Canadian and U.S. companies, including some of the best-known news media organizations in North America.
