Multiple media outlets are reporting that media reporter Ronald Grover is leaving Bloomberg Businessweek to work as the Los Angeles bureau chief for Reuters. Grover has been with BusinessWeek since 1979, and began covering entertainment and media in 1986. From Talking Biz News, who broke the story:
While Reuters has been hiring a number of big-name business journalists in the past year, this move is an important hire in that Reuters now has a deal for much of its Hollywood business coverage with The Wrap. Grover’s hiring means that the news service would become more aggressive in covering that beat.
An official announcement is expected from Reuters on Monday, according to LA Observed.
