Bloomberg executive editor Kaufman to run Northeastern journalism school
In a note to the Bloomberg editorial staff on Tuesday, editor in chief John Micklethwait wrote:
In his six years here, Jonathan has been involved in and directed many of our award-winning enterprise pieces, including Inversions, which won the Pulitzer Prize, and our investigation into student loan abuses, a George Polk winner. We wish him the best of luck – and I am looking forward to him sending us squadrons of promising young journalists.
The Companies beat is a huge one, so I have asked Laura Zelenko to review how we cover business around the world. In the meantime we’ve asked Dan Hauck, Jonathan’s deputy, to oversee Company news on an interim basis. Dan joined us in 2004 on the stocks team and has since run equities coverage in the U.S. and Europe, overseen the Real M&A column, and became global managing editor for company news in 2013.
Kaufman joined Bloomberg News from the Wall Street Journal in 2009 as team leader for education and then became managing editor for health and education globally.
Kaufman served as Beijing bureau chief for the Journal and Berlin bureau chief for the Boston Globe.
He has a BA from Yale and an MA in East Asian studies from Harvard.
