Bloomberg’s Wallbank is moving to Singapore
Bloomberg News journalist Derek Wallbank is moving to Singapore to be a senior editor for breaking news in Asia for the news organization.
Wallbank has worked for Bloomberg in Washington since June 2011.
“I have been blessed to work on the greatest breaking news desk in the history of them, with a better team than I’ve had any right to be part of,” wrote Wallbank on Twitter. “Bloomberg’s Washington bureau is top notch and I will miss it fiercely.”
He most recently ran the Washington breaking news desk for Bloomberg, directly supervising staff of more than a dozen in five cities in the U.S. and Asia-Pacific to provide real-time coverage of the White House, Congress, U.S. foreign policy, regulatory agencies and electoral politics.
Wallbank previously worked for MinnPost.com as its Washington correspondent and for Congressional Quarterly.
He is a Michigan State University graduate.
