Josh Tyrangiel GJosh Tyrangiel, editor of Businessweek since 2009, is good at his job. And that’s why he’s being moved. According to a memo obtained by Daily Intel, Tyrangiel is taking a temporary break from Businessweek to help expand Bloomberg TV.

“I’ve asked Josh Tyrangiel to detach from Bloomberg Businessweek and join me and Andy full-time through the end of the year,” wrote Justin Smith, Bloomberg Media’s CEO. “Josh will help with all aspects of the strategy process, with a special focus on thinking through our plans for television.”

Tyrangiel is expected to miss about six issues.
