BusinessWeek staff moves: 3rd update

November 20, 2009

Here are some more decisions made at BusinessWeek about its future staff once it is acquired by Bloomberg LP next month.

The previous list had gotten too long, according to some, to track.

1. Cliff Edwards, a correspondent in the Silicon Valley bureau, where he covers Intel, the semiconductor industry, handheld- and consumer-electronics companies, has been offered a job.

2. Reena Jana, the innovation department editor, is leaving the magazine. Prior to this position, she was a staff writer at BusinessWeek.com, covering innovation and design.

3. Tom Giles is going back to Bloomberg, but will continue in his BusinessWeek job. Giles is editor of BusinessWeek.com’s Technology & Science channel, based in Silicon Valley. Before joining BusinessWeek.com in August 2005, he was deputy technology team leader at Bloomberg News, where he spent more than eight years.

4. Roben Farzad is staying with the magazine. He is a senior writer who covers finance and Wall Street who previously worked at Goldman Sachs.

5. Nanette Byrnes is also staying with the new Bloomberg BusinessWeek. She has been a senior writer since March 2003, specializing in corporate finance and management. She was previously associate editor, Corporations department editor, and a finance correspondent in the Los Angeles bureau.

6. Emily Thornton will be joining Daniel Hertzberg‘s finance team at Bloomberg News. Thornton has been a senior writer at the magazine. Previously, she was an associate editor, investment banking editor, and Tokyo correspondent
