Bloomberg TV’s Matt Miller Bounces Back from 2013 Hit-and-Run

Here’s an impressive way to bridge the gap between graduating from Columbia Journalism school and starting a job at Alaska’s Cordova Times: crank out a solid longform piece for Business Insider.

MattMillerPicThere’s a personal connection here. Long before attending Columbia, article author Ben Yeager, at age 10, met Bloomberg TV’s Matt Miller (pictured) on Fire Island, where their families owned adjacent summer homes. Yeager does a great job of recounting the horrible hit-and-run accident that Miller was involved in on May 29, 2013, and notes that the pickup vs. Ducati motorcycle incident has done little to slow Miller down:

Miller covers business (and increasingly Bitcoin). He is also an automotive-industry reporter, a gig with serious perks. He is rarely without a luxury sedan or sports car — think Aston Martins, Bentleys, and Ferraris — provided by the automakers for his segments.

Bloomberg LP Getting Earful of Worker Complaints

A View From Bloomberg Tower/glassdoor.com

Mayor Bloomberg’s financial news empire, a.k.a. Bloomberg LP, which runs Bloomberg Radio (WBBR/1130) and Bloomberg TV, started in New York 31 years ago.

Bloomberg still holds a majority ownership in the media company that controls one-third of the $16 million global financial data market.

But all is not beautiful at Bloomberg, which has its “world headquarters” next to Bloomingdales on the Upper East Side.

The Website, Glassdoor, which provides background information on jobs and companies, also allows reviews. Those usually anonymous comments give additional insight into the “Glass Tower” on Lexington Avenue.

At last check, more than 500 current and former “Bloombergers” gave reviews to the site.

The prevailing positive is that the privately held company pays competitive salaries. But that doesn’t mean all employees are loving life at Bloomberg. Don’t take my word it. Here’s a sampling of some disgruntled employees.

Bloomberg TV’s Dominic Chu Recalls Panic of Stock Market Crash

domchu.jpgA veteran of Wall Street, Dominic Chu landed his gig as a markets reporter for Bloomberg Television with just his knowledge of finance and a stellar audition. And though he is relatively new to the media industry, he has covered his share of hard hitting news during his two years on the air, including the Flash Crash of 2010.

“It was definitely a very fast and furious situation,” Chu said in his Mediabistro interview. “Things were literally happening not in hours or minutes, but seconds sometimes. It was a bit of an adrenaline rush, because it was historic just by the sheer volatility. Probably one of the hardest parts was trying to stay calm and be able to deliver some kind of message that was understandable to the audience.”
