Oscar Bronner (born 14 January 1943) is an Austrian newspaper publisher and painter.


Bronner was born in Haifa, Palestine, on 14 January 1943. He is the eldest son of Austrian cabaret artist Gerhard Bronner. In 1948, at the age of five, he returned with his father to Austria. In 1970 Bronner launched the monthly economic journal trend and news magazine profil.[1][2] In 1974 trend and profil were sold and Bronner emigrated to New York, where he lived as a painter, having several exhibitions both in Europe and America.[3] He returned to Vienna in 1986 and in 1988 he founded the national daily newspaper Der Standard, of which he remains publisher.[2][4]

In 2008, Austrian journalists Klaus Stimeder and Eva Weissenberger wrote a biography on Bronner, entitled "Trotzdem. Oscar Bronner. Eine Biografie." The book was published in English under the title of Despite Everything - The Oscar Bronner Story.[1]
