Bloomberg Markets Editor Henkoff Discusses What’s Next For The Magazine, BusinessWeek and Bloomberg


We were eager to listen in to today’s Morning Media Menu podcast this morning, because we hoped guest Ron Henkoff, editor of Bloomberg Markets, would let us in on a little inside information stemming from Bloomberg LP‘s recent purchase of BusinessWeek.

Henkoff told hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven that BusinessWeek would not be combined with Bloomberg Markets, an idea that had been floating around before the sale was made final. “Bloomberg will have what we hope will be the world’s leading business weekly in BusinessWeek and the world’s leading financial monthly, which is Bloomberg Markets,” Henkoff explained.

Henkoff said that decisions are still being made about the eventual size of the BusinessWeek staff. “What’s important is that both magazines will become part of Bloomberg News, which is a global newsgathering organization dedicated to news on business and finance,” he said.

Also discussed: Bloomberg Markets coverage and what’s in the magazine’s future.
