Scheduling reports using Apex

I have a requirement to send weekly reports in email to indivudual memebrs as per their visibility.

I've an idea to write an apex class which I can schedule it using Scheduled Apex.
Inside the class I want to use ReportManager class to run a specific report.

My question here is - How can I run it as a specific user ?

Create a dashboard as a running user and schedule it instead of using apex.
Thanks Suraj.
But the question is - How can we do that all users ? Without any manual interuption.

On the dashboard page, click on Refresh and then schedule refresh 

Then schedule it accordingly

 Users can schedule reports with criteria based on the report contents. When the platform runs the report, the criteria gets evaluated and if met will result in notifications sent to the user. The usual Email and Chatter options are available, as well Mobile Notifications for Salesforce1 mobile users, pretty cool!

You can have only one running user at a time and all the recipients will receive the report with that users's context. So, you need to implement the batch apex for this where you can query all the records related to all the users whom you want to send the report and then can send email to the specific users, after, you can schedule the batch as per your requirement.
