Anchor Gura leaves Bloomberg Television
Anchor David Gura has left Bloomberg Television, a company spokeswoman confirmed Monday to Talking Biz News.
Gura, who had been with Bloomberg TV since March 2015, did not respond to a request for comment.
Gura has been the anchor of “Bloomberg Markets: The Trump Economy” on Bloomberg Television and also co-anchor of “Bloomberg Surveillance” on Bloomberg Radio.
Recently, Gura reported from Beijing, Bogota, and Mexico City. In 2015, he was on the ground in Athens, covering a debate over austerity measures, when protests erupted in Syntagma Square. Ahead of the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, he filed reports on reconstruction from the Gulf Coast. Gura regularly interviews cabinet secretaries and chief executives, entrepreneurs and Nobel Prize winners.
Previously, he was a senior reporter for, and the principal back-up host of, “Marketplace,” the public radio business and economics program. Based in Washington, Gura covered countless budget battles, showdowns and shutdowns, and the implementation of financial reform. But he spent a lot of time looking at how policy decisions play out beyond the Beltway.
He began his career at NPR, first as an editor and a producer, then as a reporter for The Two-Way, the network’s breaking news blog. Gura regularly contributed radio pieces to NPR’s flagship news magazines, “All Things Considered,” “Morning Edition,” and “Weekend Edition.” His writing — reviews and reportage — has appeared in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Columbia Journalism Review, and the Virginia Quarterly Review.
