OLD Media Moves

Bloomberg tech columnist to begin appearing in BusinessWeek

December 4, 2009

Rich Jaroslovsky, who began writing a tech column for Bloomberg earlier this year, will now have that column appear in BusinessWeek, the magazine it acquired at the beginning of the month.

His column apparently replaces the one that had been written by Steve Wildstrom, one of the BusinessWeek staffers who was not retained by Bloomberg.

Jaroslovsky had been an executive editor at Bloomberg until May, when he began writing the column.

Prior to joining Bloomberg, Jaroslovsky held a variety of positions at The Wall Street Journal and its parent, Dow Jones & Co. In early 1994, he was selected to help create and launch The Wall Street Journal Online
(WSJ.com) and became its first managing editor, with responsibility for organizing and managing its news operation, a post he held until 2001.

Jaroslovsky founded and was elected the first president of the Online News Association, an organization of journalists dedicated to promoting excellence in digital journalism. He has taught courses on the Internet
and online news at Duke University’s Sanford Institute of Public Policy and at the Columbia School of Journalism.

Awards include Editor & Publisher’s EPpy for outstanding individual achievement in online media; Columbia’s Hearst New Media Fellowship; the White House Correspondents Association’s Aldo Beckman Memorial Award for his coverage of the Reagan administration; and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education award for an article he wrote for Stanford Magazine.

A California native, Jaroslovsky received a bachelor’s degree in political science from Stanford University, where he later chaired the board of directors of the Stanford Alumni Association.
