Bloomberg hires four Pulitzer winners
Daniel Hertzberg, a Pulitzer PrizeÂ winning editor and reporter at The Wall Street Journal for more than threeÂ decades, joined Bloomberg NewsÂ service as senior editor-at-large in New York as part of Bloomberg’s global expansion in markets, finance and regional business news.
Hertzberg retired from The Journal last month.
“Dan Hertzberg sets the standard for global news judgment and has few peers embodying the best practices of journalism,” said BloombergÂ editor-in-chief Matthew WinklerÂ in a statement.
Hertzberg, who will report to Winkler, said, “I’m happy to be joining one of the world’s most exciting news organizations that is setting standards in the new world of journalism.”
Bloomberg has also hired Jonathan Kaufman, a Pulitzer Prize winning editor and writer, and Daniel Golden, a Pulitzer Prize winner for beat reporting, in Boston; and Anita Sharpe, a Pulitzer Prize winner for national reporting, in Atlanta.
Kaufman comes from The Journal as well, while Golden previously worked for Conde Nast Portfolio. Golden had also previously worked at The Journal as deputy bureau chief in Boston. Sharpe was running a startup company but had worked for The Journal in Atlanta.
Kaufman and Golden will report to Laurie Hays, executive editor for companies. Sharpe will report to John McCorry, executive editor for the Americas.
