Bloomberg Businessweek hires Time journalist

Claire Suddath, who was an arts and culture writer for Time magazine, has been hired by Bloomberg Businessweek, a magazine spokeswoman confirmed late Friday night.

Suddath started at the magazine this week.

Suddath, who grew up in Chicago, graduated from Vanderbilt University and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. Claire had been at Time for three years and 10 months; before then, she worked at an alt-weekly newspaper, the Nashville Scene.

Her move from Time — and covering culture — to Businessweek is not unprecedented. Current Bloomberg Businessweek editor Josh Tyrangiel was hired in 2009 from Time, where he was deputy managing editor and spent time as the magazine’s music critic. She and Tyrangiel overlapped for about a year.

According to her Facebook page, Suddath is currently working on a story for the magazine about people who work out in the middle of the business day.
