Layoffs Hit Bloomberg’s DC Bureau

Bloomberg recently announced layoffs in its DC bureau, relocating several TV production positions to New York, where its daily politics show with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann - slated to launch in October – will be produced.

Amid news of the layoffs, Bloomberg spokeswoman Amanda Cowie shared the following statement with FishbowlDC: ”Our TV operation — in the U.S. and around the world — is growing in size. We are changing how, and where, the TV operation is run.”

“We will continue to expand our Washington coverage,” Cowie added. “We’re launching a new politics platform – including for the first time a daily political show – expanding initiatives like First Word DC, investing in financial crimes reporting, and the changes are a part of the overall new structure being put into place.”

POLITICO reports that “several print staff wil also be laid off” and that “some New York-based production jobs to London.”
