YouTube Teenage Chef Expands LA-Wisconsin Media Empire

We should all be so lucky as to have had, at age 18, a calling card as impressive as this. Meet Joe Luginbill, CEO of Luginbill Omnimedia.

The Eau Claire, WI native officially unveiled his new enterprise today to expand upon a range of media tentacles crowned by weekly YouTube cooking show Joe’s Kitchen . Luginbill Omnimedia is described as “a diversified media and merchandising company… organized into four business segments: publishing; Internet; broadcasting media platforms; and merchandising product lines.”

Luginbill tells FishbowlLA that he last came to LA to meet with the folks at LAtalkradio.com. Every Monday at 4:30 p.m., the Web outlet broadcasts a call-in radio version of Joe’s Kitchen.

There’s tremendous humor coursing through all of Lunginbill’s content. For example, in the above clip, he shares his “Condoleezza rice” concoction with empty-chair President Obama.
