BloombergTV has brought on online and print veteran Dan Colarusso to serve as managing editor of U.S. television for the network, TVNewser reports.
Colarusso previously worked as managing editor for Portfolio.com, the Web site for doomed Condé Nast business publication Portfolio, which was shuttered earlier this year.
Prior to joining Portfolio.com, Colarusso worked as a business editor and metro editor at The New York Post, although his depature from the paper was fraught with drama. He has also contributed to The New York Times, Barrons and The Daily Beast.
The news comes one day after we learned that another Portfolio cast-off, Jim Impoco, had taken a somewhat non-traditional role at Reuters as enterprise editor. As traditional journalism models fold and evolve, we will probably be seeing more print journalists moving to the Web and then working in multimedia or, like Colarusso, television. It’s possible that the print jobs that have disappeared in the past year won’t return, so it’s more important than ever to be dynamic.
What do you think about this shift?
