Bloomberg hires Krasny from Reuters
She will start on March 16.
Krasny comes to Bloomberg after 12 years at Reuters, the last two as editor-in-charge of commodities, energy and companies coverage out of Washington. She previously was their bureau chief in Boston, where she helped anchor early coverage of the 2012 presidential campaign, and a Federal Reserve/economic policy reporter.
She also spent many years writing about agricultural commodity markets with Bridge News and Knight-Ridder Financial news.
Krasny was born and raised in Sydney, Australia, but really grew up in Chicago on a steady diet of bratwurst and Bears football games. She has two degrees from Northwestern University, a Bachelor of Philosophy and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies.
