Newcomer switches to tech and politics beat at Bloomberg
Eric Newcomer, who covers Uber for Bloomberg News, is switching to the tech and politics beat for the news organization.
He joined Bloomberg in 2014. Newcomer joined from The Information, where he covered start-ups and venture capital and broke news including Amazon’s acquisition of Twitch. He will start at Bloomberg in late December.
Before moving to San Francisco, he covered D.C. City Hall for the Washington Examiner, where he wrote about the mayor’s budget, corruption scandals and city council races.
In the summer of 2012, he worked as a James Reston Reporting Fellow for the New York Times. He wrote about Bill de Blasio before it was cool, chased after a loose peacock in Queens and reported on a power company lockout negotiated by Gov. Cuomo.
Newcomer had internships at the Tampa Bay Times, the Sun Sentinel and his hometown newspaper, the Macon Telegraph.
At The Harvard Crimson, he won awards for investigative reporting for a four-part series on sexual assault at Harvard. He served as associate managing editor at the paper and graduated in 2012 with a degree in philosophy.
