The View to Be Overseen by ABC News (TVNewser)
The View is moving from the entertainment unit of ABC to the non-fiction programming group of ABC News. THR New ABC News head James Goldston, who will now oversee The View, announced the move in a staff memo sent out on Thursday morning. Goldston is largely responsible for Good Morning America’s transformation to a multi-anchor ensemble, which helped the ABC morning show end NBC rival Today’s 16-year morning-news ratings winning streak. He’s also responsible for remaking Nightline into a multi-anchor, multi-topic program in the wake of Ted Koppel’s retirement. HuffPost / AP Following the retirement of Barbara Walters from an on-air role at the show she started, ABC brought in Rosie O’Donnell, Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez to join holdover Whoopi Goldberg. A new production team was named, led by Bill Wolff, Rachel Maddow’s former producer. Capital New York Still, after a strong first week, the program has begun to slip in the ratings. For the week of Oct. 12, CBS’ The Talk, which is clearly based on the format of The View, matched the program in two key demos: women 25-54 and women 18-49. Variety One of Goldston’s central goals, according to insiders, is to make The View more appealing to younger viewers. The show has fallen 10 percent in the last year among female viewers between the ages of 18 to 49, but it’s up 1 percent in total viewers.

Bloomberg View Adds Two

Bloomberg View has added Eli Lake and Josh Rogin as columnists covering national security and international affairs. Both Lake and Rogin were most recently senior correspondents for The Daily Beast and Newsweek.

Prior to The Daily Beast and Newsweek, Lake served as a intelligence reporter for The Washington Times. Rogin served as a staff writer for Foreign Policy and Congressional Quarterly.

“In story after story and scoop after scoop, Eli and Josh have made themselves essential reads in the world of foreign policy and national security,” said David Shipley, Bloomberg View’s senior executive editor, in a statement. “The work they do, a mix of clear-eyed reporting and authoritative analysis, has never been more important — or as valuable.”

Lake and Rogin will be based in Washington and begin November 17.

Bloomberg Adds Tech Columnist, Promotes Others

bloomberg media logoBloomberg has made a few moves — one hire and a few promotions — that we thought we should highlight.

Katie Benner is joining Bloomberg View as a columnist covering innovation, tech, and Silicon Valley. Benner comes to Bloomberg from The Information, where she served as a staff writer. She previously worked for Fortune, TheStreet.com and CNN/Money.

As for Bloomberg LP’s promotions, John Fraher has been bumped up to executive editor for international government; Ron Mathieson has been upped to regional managing editor for international government; Andrew Barden has been tapped as managing editor for EMEA; and Craig Stirling has been named managing editor for economy in EMEA.

Bloomberg View Adds Mohamed El-Erian, WSJ Sends Editor to Hong Kong

A couple moves to note this morning, involving Bloomberg View and The Wall Street Journal. Details are below.

  • Mohamed El-Erian has joined Bloomberg View as a columnist focusing on economic policy and financial markets. El-Erian is chairman of President Obama’s Global Development Council, a contributor to the Financial Times, and PIMCo’s former CEO. You can read his first column here.
  • Rob Rossi, currently the Journal’s deputy national news editor, has been named deputy editor, standards for Asia. Rossi will be  based in Hong Kong, making him the Journal’s first standards and ethics editor to be based outside of New York. Rossi has been with the paper since 2000.

Bloomberg View Revamps Site, Adds Custom URL

Bloomberg View, the opinion arm of Bloomberg News, is growing up. The site now has its own URL (Bloombergview.com) and a brand new look.

The revamped View features responsive design which David Shipley, senior executive editor of the site, hopes will highlight its columnists.

“This updated website is the natural progression of our growth in the opinion space,” said Shipley, in a statement. “Bloomberg View’s reach has grown steadily since our inception nearly three years ago, and the redesign mirrors our evolution toward a core group of columnists and editorialists exploring and defining the issues of the moment.”

It’s not surprising that Bloomberg View has changed so drastically. When Michael Bloomberg rejoined Bloomberg Media, we noted that his focus would be on growing the site. When the boss man wants something, the boss man gets it.

Jonathan Bernstein Joins Bloomberg View

Bloomberg view logo GJonathan Bernstein is joining Bloomberg View, the op-ed site from Bloomberg, as a columnist focusing on national politics. Bernstein is a political scientist and a writer at A Plain Blog About Politics. His work has also been featured in The New Republic, Salon, The Washington Post and more.

“Jonathan is one of the most sophisticated and prolific political observers writing today,” said David Shipley, senior executive editor of Bloomberg View, in a statement. “He brings a distinct passion and a strong, authoritative voice to his work. Readers are going to find him indispensable, especially as we enter a new political season.”

Bernstein’s appointment is effective immediately.

Michael Bloomberg Headed Back to Bloomberg LP

Michael Bloomberg doesn’t need money, but he apparently wants to keep working. When he leaves the mayor’s office at the end of the year, Bloomberg is going to take a spot at Bloomberg, which is a luxury not many people can identify with. Capital New York reports that Bloomberg will be focusing his efforts on Bloomberg View, the op-ed site that no one reads.

The fact that View is barely ever mentioned in the press is likely the very reason Bloomberg is headed there. View was launched two years ago, with the goal of spreading Bloombergian opinions across the globe. But that never happened. And so, enter Bloomberg. He’s going to write for the site and ask his rich and powerful friends to contribute as well.

We doubt Bloomberg’s constant attention will be enough to make Bloomberg View a household name, but you can’t blame him for trying. In any case, it’ll be an interesting situation to monitor.

Oh, and let’s all say a prayer for whoever is responsible for editing Bloomberg’s pieces. That’s uh, not going to be fun.

Matt Levine Joins Bloomberg View

Matt Levine is joining Bloomberg View as a financial columnist. Levine has spent the past two years as editor of Dealbreaker.com, where he wrote about everything from the Facebook IPO to the AIG bailout. Levine’s writing has also been featured on CNN.com and in The Wall Street Journal.

“We’re excited to have Matt join us and to add his formidable and intimate understanding of financial markets to the strengths of our existing coverage,” said David Shipley, executive editor of Bloomberg View, in a statement. “Matt is fast, insightful and has a distinct and well-founded point of view, all of which will continue to be hallmarks of our coverage.”

In his last post on Dealbreaker, Levine expressed gratitude for his time there. “I started reading Dealbreaker as a junior M&A lawyer in 2006, so I’ve been a fan from the beginning,” wrote Levine. “It’s still a little hard to believe that I got to actually help make Dealbreaker for a while. It’s been a great privilege, and I’m looking forward to being a fan again.”

Jonathan Landman Joins Bloomberg View

Bloomberg View has made another high profile hire. Jonathan Landman, who accepted a buyout from The New York Times in January, is coming aboard as an editor-at-large. Landman had been with the Times for over two decades.

“Jon has a record of revolutionizing and improving everything he touches,” said David Shipley, Bloomberg View’s executive editor, in a statement. “He will bring a fresh set of eyes to a number of important initiatives that will help Bloomberg journalism reach ever more readers. Jon’s a great journalist and a superb leader and it’s thrilling to have him as a colleague.”

Just yesterday Tim O’Brien was named publisher, so it’s obvious Bloomberg View is looking to make waves. Now, if only people actually read the site.
