Bloomberg Names Sports Business Editor

Sports business—not sports—is welcome at Bloomberg.

Bloomberg has named Janet Paskin head of its new sports business team. Paskin most recently served as editor of Businessweek.com and assistant managing editor of Businessweek.

Prior to joining Bloomberg, Paskin worked for The Philadelphia Inquirer, Money and The Wall Street Journal.

“Just back from maternity leave, Janet is enthusiastic about our commitment to covering the business of sports and eager to work across Bloomberg’s teams and platforms to break news and develop smart enterprise,” wrote Bloomberg senior executive editor Laura Zelenko, in a memo to staffers.
