Joe Nocera Leaves NY Times For Bloomberg

Nocera had been with the Times for just over a decade.

Joe Nocera is leaving The New York Times to join Bloomberg as a columnist for Bloomberg View and a features writer for Businessweek.

Nocera had been with the Times since 2005, most notably serving as an op-ed columnist for several years. Nocera most recently worked for the Times’ sports desk.

According to the Observer, “Nocera emailed Mike Bloomberg personally and ‘within 18 hours’ Nocera was contacted and an exit from the Times and a soft landing at Bloomberg were being negotiated.”
