Bloomberg’s Mike Riley Named Talking Biz News Journalist of The Year

Mike Riley, a Bloomberg News reporter, has been named Talking Biz News’ Business Journalist of The Year. TBN explained that Riley won for his “deeply reported stories about digital attacks” that “exposed corporate America’s vulnerabilities.”

Winnie O’Kelly, a Bloomberg executive editor who has worked with Riley, told TBN that Riley is “an editor’s dream.”

“Mike has been several steps ahead of the pack reporting on cyber security, writing with great authority as companies were  ever more seriously breached” O’Kelly continued. “He predicted the blurred lines between criminal and state- sponsored activity by hackers for hire that have at times confounded responses by the Obama administration, while capturing the mistakes made by companies from Target to Sony.”

Riley has been with Bloomberg since 2010. Prior to that he worked for eight years at The Denver Post.
