“The Des Moines Register has a longstanding record of providing the definitive coverage in a state with a special franchise in the American democratic process,” said Bloomberg Politics managing editor Mark Halperin in the release. “The Register serves their readers at a level of excellence very few papers are able to still achieve. They are in touch with Iowa voters and Iowa voters play a huge role in selecting the President.”

Bloomberg Politics unveiled two promos for it’s much anticipated program “With All Due Respect,” to be hosted by Game Change and Double Down authors John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.

“In a world where people say with all due respect when that is not at all what they mean comes a new show that fuses popular culture, the political world, and TV…and translates what people are actually saying,” the movie trailer-like longer promo of the two says in its opening.

The daily politics show premieres Monday, October 6, at 5pm on Bloomberg TV and BloombergPolitics.com.

But seriously, with all due respect…

Slate’s David Weigel Headed to Bloomberg Politics

WeigelIn a post to Slate Tuesday afternoon, political reporter David Weigel announced his September 19 departure for Bloomberg Politics, days ahead of the expected October 6 launch of the Bloomberg Politics site, to feature a daily politics show with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

“This is still my favorite magazine and I’m only leaving it because Bloomberg’s putting together — I will try to avoid corporate-speak — an ambitious political magazine run by the sort of geniuses who made Bloomberg Businessweek into a great print mag, and New York‘s political coverage a daily must-read,” wrote Weigel.

Rep. Paul Ryan on Pushing Tortilla Coast’s ‘Sunset Sauce’

During an interview today for Bloomberg Television with managing editors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, former vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) discussed his recently published book The Way Forward: Renewing the American Idea, the conflict in the Middle East, and Tortilla Coast’s sunset sauce.

“Waiting tables is one of the best jobs I ever had,” declared Ryan. “It taught me a lot about people, about life, how to communicate with people. And I would sell fajitas on a sizzling platter. And if you could add Sunset Sauce, which is basically melted Velveeta cheese and put a little bit of pico de gallo in it, you could really up the bill a little bit and maybe get a little better tip in it. So we really pushed the Sunset Sauce and anything with shrimp in it.”

Bloomberg Snags Esquire’s Mike Nizza

Mike NizzaEsquire digital editor Mike Nizza is soon headed to Bloomberg to serve as its executive editor of the soon to be launched Bloomberg Politics website.

On Friday, FishbowlDC reported that ABC’s Tom Johnson and “The Daily Show’s” Pat King will also join the vertical, as executive editor and senior producer, respectively. They will lead a daily politics show with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann planned to debut in October, the same time as the Bloomberg Politics site.

ABC’s Tom Johnson and ‘Daily Show’s’ Pat King Join Bloomberg

Bloomberg senior executive editor Josh Tyrangiel announced to staff today in a memo that Tom Johnson will soon join Bloomberg’s politics vertical as executive editor and that Pat King has recently as a senior producer.

Johnson joins Bloomberg from ABC News, where he served as a senior broadcast producer for “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer.” King comes from “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” where he was a segment producer.

TVNewser reports that “Johnson and King will serve as executive producer and senior producer, respectively, for the daily politics show with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann slated to launch in October.”

Read the full memo, after the jump.

All,

Happy news about Bloomberg Politics. Tom Johnson is joining us as executive editor, and Pat King has joined us senior producer.

Tom has a mere twenty years experience at ABC News, where he was most recently senior broadcast producer at ABC World News with Diane Sawyer. In addition to imbuing the show with great story judgment, Tom led WN’s international coverage and digital strategy. During his tenure, ABC World News piled up awards and accolades, which is all very nice. More important is that Tom brings a spectacular mix of talent and temperament—his colleagues at ABC note that he’s usually the smartest guy in the room, and rarely feels the need to remind anyone of it.

Pat King comes to Bloomberg after a nine-year stint at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, where he was most recently a segment producer. So to answer your question, yes, Pat is funny. However he’s not here to make the show funny. (Obviously that’s my job.) Pat’s a passionate observer of national politics with a tremendous instinct for research. He finds clips that lead to stories, and then he tells those stories expertly.

Tom starts ASAP. Pat recently completed orientation and is already hard at work. Both are based in New York.

I think you’re going to love working with them.
