After several weeks of reporting for the network, Bloomberg TV announced today that Lara Setrakian has officially joined the network.

Setrakian, who will be based in Dubai, was seen reporting alongside Margaret Brennan during the crisis in Egypt last month.

Setrakian joins Bloomberg from ABC News. This morning on Twitter she announced she’ll still contribute to ABC News.

With great joy I officially join @BloombergTV. Continue as a contributor to ABC News. In search of a new handle.

Her current Twitter handle is @LaraABCNews (25,114 followers)

“Lara is a seasoned journalist with a strong understanding of the important news stories coming out of the Gulf,” said Bloomberg TV ME Malcolm Fried. “Her on-the-ground expertise and contacts will offer our global audience a unique perspective on how the Middle East is impacting politics and business worldwide.”
