Bloomberg Digital Promotes Joe Weisenthal

From managing editor of markets coverage to executive editor of news.

Joe Weisenthal (pictured) will have a new title and expanded professional responsibilities to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. The managing editor of Bloomberg Media’s markets coverage and co-host of Bloomberg TV’s What’d You Miss? has been promoted to executive editor of news.

From the memo circulated today by Bloomberg Digital senior executive editor Jared Sandberg:

In his new position, Joe will help serve the news needs of the consumer audience and better coordinate with the rest of Bloomberg News, using his seasoned sense of reader tastes to expand our audience. He will be instrumental in shaping coverage beyond markets news and setting the pace for our flagship consumer website. Embedded with Rak Saluja‘s U.S. homepage team and Top, Joe has already helped refine news practices ranging from story framing to headlines and optimal web play.

Since joining Bloomberg in 2014, Joe has built a nimble markets team for Bloomberg Digital. Working closely with other markets editors and writers, he has offered an endless stream of coverage ideas for reporters across Bloomberg. Tireless and always excited about the news, he plays on every platform: the terminal, the web, television and podcasts. Joe launched and co-anchored the daily television show, What’d You Miss? He also created and co-hosts the Odd Lots podcast with Tracy Alloway and he has anchored a number of our live webcasts.

The promotion is effective immediately. Weisenthal will continue to co-host What’d You Miss?.
