Bloomberg has hired Mike Nizza away from Esquire as part of the company’s efforts to develop a new suite of media brands aimed at a consumer audience, reports Joe Pompeo of Capital New York.

Pompeo writes, “Nizza, who currently serves as Esquire‘s digital editor and was previously managing editor of The Daily, News Corp’s short-lived iPad newspaper, will begin his new job at Bloomberg Media Group in the coming weeks. He also has worked as an online editor at AOL and The New York Times.

“At the media group, which is in the process of building out a multiplatform journalism operation under the leadership of C.E.O. Justin Smith, Nizza will serve as executive editor of the Bloomberg Politics website that’s being helmed by Game Change co-authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. He will report to ABC News veteran Tom Johnson, who on Friday was named executive editor of the full Bloomberg Politics franchise spanning digital, print and television.

“The politics site is scheduled to debut, along with a corresponding television show, on Oct. 6, making it the first launch in a protracted rollout that some insiders say has been marked by setbacks and delays.”
