Josh Tyrangiel Taking Temporary Break from Businessweek

Josh Tyrangiel GJosh Tyrangiel, editor of Businessweek since 2009, is good at his job. And that’s why he’s being moved. According to a memo obtained by Daily Intel, Tyrangiel is taking a temporary break from Businessweek to help expand Bloomberg TV.

“I’ve asked Josh Tyrangiel to detach from Bloomberg Businessweek and join me and Andy full-time through the end of the year,” wrote Justin Smith, Bloomberg Media’s CEO. “Josh will help with all aspects of the strategy process, with a special focus on thinking through our plans for television.”

Tyrangiel is expected to miss about six issues.

Link Service Tracks Media Popularity

Bit.ly, a link shortening service, just released an interactive map that tracks media popularity. It’s a fun little item to explore on a Friday.

According to its numbers, The Guardian is the most popular newspaper site in New York. Sorry New York Times and WSJ!

The map also says that the most popular magazine site is Businessweek, the most popular TV/radio site is PBS, and the most popular online only publication is Slate.

Keep in mind that this only means these are the most popular sites according to bit.ly users. Still, it’s interesting. Or at least, more interesting than this.

Businessweek Partners with Netflix for Henry Paulson Documentary

It has been five years since Wall Street suffered its melt down, and Businessweek wants to celebrate. In an interesting way, of course. The magazine has partnered with Netflix to produce Hank: Five Years From the Brink, a documentary about former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson.

The film features Paulson explaining how and why he tried to get banks and the government to approve the bailouts, even though he didn’t completely agree with the move. Hank — produced and directed by Joe Berlinger — marks Businessweek’s first foray into film, and the debut product from Bloomberg Businessweek Films, a new division of the magazine.

“We’re honored to have Hank seen on such an innovative platform as Netflix, and incredibly fortunate to have been able to partner with the great Joe Berlinger on this documentary,” said Josh Tyrangiel, editor of Businessweek, in a statement.

Accompanying Hank is this week’s Businessweek, which will be entirely dedicated to the fifth anniversary of the financial collapse.

Hank debuts next Monday, September 16, on Netflix.

Businessweek Debuts ‘Cover Trails’

We’re big fans of Bloomberg Businessweek’s covers, so we’re excited about the new “Cover Trails” feature that has been added to the front of the book.

Cover Trails are the mini-story behind how each week’s cover was made. It features thoughts from Businessweek’s editor-in-chief Josh Tyrangiel and creative director Richard Turley, ideas that were canned, and much more.

You can see them each week in print, but here’s a Cover Trail that is online now.

Businessweek Goes with Two Covers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week’s Bloomberg Businessweek features two covers. We’re partial to the Costco one, but both are pretty good.

Feel free to fight your friends over which one is better.

You’re Better Than This, Businessweek

If you’ve been reading FishbowlNY for the past year or so, you know just how much we love Businessweek. We consider it one of the best magazines published.

From the content to the covers, we’ve pretty much given a bear hug to Businessweek and we refuse to let go.

That’s why we’re a bit disppointed in the latest issue’s cover. Plastering “exclusive” over it is just obnoxious. Because as we all know, no one cares about exclusives.

But hey, Businessweek is money about 90 percent of the time, and the interview with Tim Cook is a good read, so we’re not going to get too caught up in this bad cover.

Also, it’s not really exclusive, since Cook is speaking with Brian Williams on NBC tonight.

Businessweek Pulls Article Ranking Schools by Girls’ ‘Hotness’ [Update]

Businessweek is in hot water for a piece ranking business schools according to the attractiveness of its female students. When the poll was published, the backlash began. On Twitter, people were genuinely shocked and upset that such a piece would run in the magazine. Even the poll itself — now yanked from Businessweek’s site — caught angry comments from readers.

“BusinessWeek, this demeans women by suggesting our function is to be ‘decorative’, demeans those considering business school by suggesting this is a ‘story that matters’, and demeans your publcation by suggesting that you think this kind of thing is acceptable,” wrote one woman.

Here is the Google cache version of the “hotness” poll, via Daily Dot. The piece and the tweet about the poll are both gone, but there has yet to be a statement about it from Businessweek.

UPDATE:
