Charlie Rose to write BW column

November 30, 2009

Matthew Flamm of Crain’s New York reports that TV talk-show host Charlie Rose will begin writing a column for BusinessWeek once the magazine is acquired by Bloomberg LP.

Flamm reports, “The column, which will debut in the Dec. 21 issue of the magazine, is being promoted almost as an extension of Mr. Rose’s nightly show. It ‘will showcase smart conversations with the best thinkers, CEOs, politicians and other newsmakers,’ according to a Monday statement from Bloomberg.

“Mr. Rose won’t have much competition in the category of celebrity columnists writing for the weekly. Longtime contributors to the magazine, Jack and Suzy Welch, recently announced they were moving on, and CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo will also disappear from the magazine’s pages following the transition.

“Approximately 100 BusinessWeek staffers have lost their jobs as Bloomberg has taken control of the property in recent weeks.

“Mr. Rose already has a relationship with Bloomberg. His show is rebroadcast nightly on the Bloomberg Television cable network, and it’s taped in a Bloomberg studio.”
