Alex Weprin of TVNewser.com reports that Bloomberg Television reporter Michele Steele is leaving for a job at ESPN.

Weprin reports, “Steele is the second business network talent to depart for Bristol in recent weeks: ESPN hired Fox Business Network anchor Chris Cotter last month. The channel also recently hired a sports business reporter of its own in Kristi Dosh, who founded the Business of College Sports blog.

“Bloomberg TV meanwhile has seen a small exodus of talent. In the last few weeks producer Mark Berniker left the channel while managing editor Dan Colarusso jumped to Reuters. That said, Bloomberg has also been adding staffers to its ranks, including Courtney Chapman and Wendy Brundige from ABC, Stephanie Ruhle from Deutsche Bank and Justin Dial from CNN.”

Since joining Bloomberg in 2007, Steele also held various anchoring and reporting roles including reporting live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Prior to joining Bloomberg Television, Steele was a senior reporter for Forbes video on-demand service and a regular contributor to Forbes on Fox.
