Bloomberg Businessweek editor Josh Tyrangiel is taking a leave from the magazine to help with Bloomberg Television, according to New York magazine’s Joe Coscarelli.
Coscarelli reports that the change was announced in an email from Bloomberg Media CEO Justin Smith, which states:
To lean more heavily on that talent and make sure all of our voices are being heard, I’ve asked Josh Tyrangiel to detach from Bloomberg Businessweek and join me and Andy full-time through the end of the year. Josh will help with all aspects of the strategy process, with a special focus on thinking through our plans for television. Over the last four years, Josh has transformed Bloomberg Businessweek into a must-read with a fresh voice, personality and perspective. Josh and his team’s approach to storytelling have made Businessweek the destination for intelligent conversation around global business. In short, he’s taken the essence of Bloomberg and transformed it into a successful, influential consumer brand. In his absence Businessweek’s all-star team of creative partners including Romesh Ratnesar, Ellen Pollock, Brad Wieners, Richard Turley, Janet Paskin will keep the magazine humming.
Effective immediately, the US TV group will be report directly to Josh.
In advising me more broadly on television and the Media Group, Josh will also be our writer in residence as we turn our strategy for Bloomberg Media due early next year into a cohesive narrative (we couldn’t ask for someone more over-qualified).
