He was born in Copenhagen, and grew up in Trondheim. He was the grandson of Carsten Gerhard Bang, manager of the Røros Copper Works.[1]

He was educated as a military officer, but ended his military career in 1844 due to illness. From then on he lived as a publicist, wrote books and edited several magazines and newspapers. From 1860 to 1866 he published the weekly magazine Lørdags-Aftenblad for Arbeidsklassen in Christiania, and established the newspaper Dagbladet in 1869.[1][2]
