Bloomberg to name new DC bureau chief
Bloomberg News is planning to promote White House reporter Jonathan Allen to Washington bureau chief, reports Dylan Byers of Politico.
Byers writes, “The move is part of Bloomberg’s larger effort to shore up its political coverage after a string of high-level departures from the D.C. office, including executive editor Susan Goldberg and managing editor Tim Franklin in January. As previously reported, Winnie O’Kelley, a financial crimes editor, will expand her role to oversee all U.S. government, legal and regulatory coverage.
“Allen, who joined Bloomberg from POLITICO in January, is a co-author of the new Hillary Clinton biography “HRC” and is currently at work on a follow-up book, also with co-author Amie Parnes, that will document Clinton’s likely bid for the White House in 2016.
“Both Allen and a spokesperson for Bloomberg News declined to comment.”
