The Biz Ticker: Bloomberg, Bartiromo, Bell

  • Jacki Kelley is joining Bloomberg Media as Chief Operating Officer. Kelley was most recently CEO for IPG Mediabrands. “There is an insatiable and magnetic ambition at Bloomberg,” Kelley said in a statement. “After looking at what is being built in the media operation here, I realized it’s one of those rare opportunities where if I did not do it, I may wonder what I missed.”

  • In a Q+A with Variety, Maria Bartiromo reveals how she unwinds at the end of the day: “I work out a lot; I ride my bike when I come home. I’ll do 20 or 30 miles a couple of times a week. And I love yoga.”

  • Jeff Zucker and several other CNN staffers — including Christine Romans, Richard Quest, Brian Stelter and Ed O’Keefe — rung the Closing Bell at the NYSE yesterday afternoon to celebrate the new CNNMoney, which is now fully owned by CNN Worldwide.
