Bloomberg News editor-in-chief Matthew Winkler announced today that David Shipley and James P. Rubin have been named executive editors and will spearhead the launch of an editorial page called The Bloomberg View. In their new roles Shipley and Rubin will oversee the creation of content and commentary across all of Bloomberg’s platforms.
Shipley comes from The New York Times where he served as deputy editorial page editor and op-ed editor. Rubin is a former U.S. Department of State assistant secretary. Winkler is confident he chose the right two men for the job:
David Shipley and Jamie Rubin bring incomparable experience and skill to the mandate of developing the Bloomberg View consistent with the values and beliefs of our global company and its internationally-minded founder, Michael R. Bloomberg. David and Jamie have no peers as an editorial duo addressing the most important issues with a pragmatic sensibility that embraces the diverse challenges of the world.
While both are Winkler’s supervision, Shipley will manage editorial matters in the U.S. and Canada leaving Rubin to handle Central and South America, Mexico, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
