James Sterngold, a reporter for Bloomberg Businessweek, left the business magazine earlier this week, a spokeswoman confirmed Thursday.

It is unknown if he left for another job. He had been at the magazine since May 2009.

Last year, Sterngold won the award for best financial/economic reporting at the Foreign Press Association Media Awards 2010. Sterngold’s report ‘Who Cares About Another $200 Million?’ on former Lehman Brothers CEO Dick Fuld failing to declare hundreds of millions of  dollars worth of compensation to U.S. Congress, appeared in the May 3-May 9 issue of the magazine.

Sterngold was once the Los Angeles bureau chief for The San Francisco Chronicle, which he left in September 2007. He worked as a correspondent and reporter for The New York Times from 1984 to 2002 and is the author of “Burning Down the House: How Greed, Deceit and Bitter Revenge Destroyed E. F. Hutton” (Summit Books, 1990).

He graduated from Middlebury College and received a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia.
