Bloomberg View hires Landman
Bloomberg View announced Wednesday that Jonathan Landman, former deputy managing editor and former culture editor of The New York Times, has been named editor-at-large.
This is a new position that will encompass a range of duties, beginning with finding innovative and engaging ways to distill, integrate and present Bloomberg opinion, news and analytics.
“Jon has a record of revolutionizing and improving everything he touches,” said David Shipley, Bloomberg View executive editor, in a statement. “He will bring a fresh set of eyes to a number of important initiatives that will help Bloomberg journalism reach ever more readers. Jon’s a great journalist and a superb leader and it’s thrilling to have him as a colleague.”
Landman joined The Times in 1987. His last position at the newspaper was culture editor, where he supervised critics, reporters and editors working on the daily and Sunday editions of the newspaper, as well as online coverage of architecture, art, books, dance, ideas, movies, television and theater.
Previously at the Times, Landman was deputy managing editor, where he oversaw the integration of print and Web newsrooms. Before that, Landman was assistant managing editor, where he was responsible for enterprise journalism, established the newspaper’s first computer-assisted reporting unit and reorganized the Culture department.
Landman’s prior roles at the Times included serving as metropolitan editor, where he managed the newspaper’s largest news department and supervised its prize-winning coverage of 9/11, and various other editorial positions, including Week in Review editor, deputy Washington editor, assistant metro editor and assistant national editor.
