Bloomberg reporter lands new job
Jonathan Salant, a Bloomberg reporter laid off in August amid cutbacks in the Washington bureau, has a new job.
Salant will be the Washington correspondent for Newhouse’s NJ Advance Media, serving nj.com and The Star-Ledger.
Salant worked at Newhouse News Service from 1987 to 1994 as the Washington correspondent for The Post-Standard and Syracuse Herald-Journal, so this is a bit of a homecoming for him.
While at Newhouse, he won two National Press Club Washington Correspondence awards for his coverage of the New York congressional delegation.
Salant is a former president of the Press Club, and he also worked for the Associated Press and Congressional Quarterly. He had been at Bloomberg for a decade
