Bill Grueskin, who has been executive editor for training at Bloomberg News for the past two years, is leaving the news organization.
Grueskin will continue to teach journalism classes at the Columbia University School of Journalism, and he will teach a winter course for Stanford University on media and technology.
He began his journalism career as a reporter and editor at the Daily American in Rome. He then served as a VISTA volunteer and founding editor of the weekly Dakota Sun on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.
Grueskin then worked at several newspapers, including the Baltimore News American and the Tampa Tribune. He was hired by the Miami Herald in 1985 where he became city editor and helped coordinate the paper’s Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of Hurricane Andrew.
He spent 13 years at the Wall Street Journal, where he began as a Page One editor in 1995. After serving several roles, he became managing editor of WSJ Online in 2001. During his tenure, the number of Journal online subscribers doubled to more than one million. He was then promoted to deputy managing editor/news in 2007 before he went to Columbia.
