Pierre Paulden, executive editor of the national desk at Bloomberg News, sent out the following on Friday:

We’re delighted to announce that Julie Fine will be joining Bloomberg as our new Texas Bureau Chief based in Dallas.

Julie is an Emmy-award winning journalist at NBC 5 Dallas/Fort Worth, where she co-hosts Lone Star Politics and reports on state-wide and national events.

In her new role, Julie will deliver high-profile interviews, connect the dots between teams and help elevate the profile of the Texas bureaus. She’ll contribute to Bloomberg’s daily politics show “Balance of Power” and work closely with Brendan Walsh in Austin, Joe Carroll in Houston and Ed Dufner in Dallas to coordinate coverage across the region and deliver content across our platforms.

Julie will start June 5 and comes onboard at a fascinating moment for Texas as it grapples with rapid population and business growth, creaking infrastructure, changing demographics and polarized politics that are reverberating far beyond the state.

A native of Buffalo, New York, she’s covered the last two Presidential elections, including Ted Cruz’s bid for the White House, was in Pittsburgh and on the scene at Penn State when Joe Paterno was fired and reported on Eliot Spitzer’s resignation.

She moved to Texas almost a decade ago, and in her spare time is passionate about sports.

Please extend a warm welcome to Julie when she begins her new role.
