Weil, who first challenged Enron, leaving Bloomberg View
Jonathan Weil, a columnist for Bloomberg View, is leaving the news organization.
Weill posted the following on Twitter: “Today is my last day at Bloomberg. My deepest gratitude to Matt Winkler and all of Bloomberg News and View.” He declined to comment about his future in reply to an email from Talking Biz News.
Weil has been credited by Columbia Journalism Review, Barron’s and The New Yorker magazine, among others, as the first reporter to challenge Enron Corp’s accounting practices during the Internet bubble, for his Sept. 20, 2000, Wall Street Journal article, “Energy Traders Cite Gains, But Some Math Is Missing”
Weil joined Bloomberg News as a columnist in 2007, and his columns on finance and accounting won Best in the Business awards from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers in 2009 and 2010.
Weil was a reporter for the Wall Street Journal from 1997 to 2006, and before that at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in Little Rock. He grew up in Hollywood, Fla., and has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a law degree from Southern Methodist University.
