Bull says goodbye to Reuters
Alister Bull, the Federal Reserve Board and economics reporter for Reuters, sent out the following goodbye message to his colleagues on Tuesday:
Today is my last day at Reuters. It has been an immense privilege to work for 23 years among the finest journalists on three continents. I will always be proud to have been a member of the Reuters tribe, and will cherish my memories of camaraderie on doorsteps all over the world.
London, Amsterdam, Johannesburg, Frankfurt and Washington. Each posting was fascinating and taught me a little more about what it meant to be a Reuters reporter, especially when working in southern Africa or difficult places like Iraq with our talented colleagues in pictures and television.
From breakfast with Nelson Mandela, to lunch with Ben Bernanke and flying around the world with Barack Obama on Air Force One, there was never a dull moment – putting aside some of those rain-swept Euro Group stakeouts. Sorry Brussels, but your weather sucks.
