Karen Toulon, who has spent much of her career at Bloomberg News, has been honored with the title of “2020 Business News Visionary” by her peers.
The honor is given to an elite group of journalists whose dedication, foresight, and talents have had a transformative impact on the profession.
Toulon was appointed chief of the New York bureau after serving eight years as team leader overseeing Bloomberg’s newsmaker and broadcast interviews.
Currently, she serves as a senior writer on Bloomberg’s global, cross-platform team that explores inequality in all its forms.
Dean Rotbart, chair and editor-in-chief of the Business News Visionary Awards said:
“Karen has led by example, helping Bloomberg News’ diverse global journalists establish a cohesive identity and encouraging team members to realize their full potential.
“In that capacity, and all her subsequent roles, Karen has demonstrated through her accomplishments that journalists and their newsroom colleagues will rise to meet a wide variety of career challenges, if they believe in themselves and if others will believe in them.”
