Bloomberg Media’s CEO Talks Business

Justin Smith GJustin Smith, CEO of Bloomberg Media since late last summer, is speaking up about the company. In an interview with Ad Age, Smith discussed Businessweek, why Bloomberg TV is worth watching, and more. Below are a few highlights.

On Businessweek’s role at Bloomberg:

When we look at the financial performance of Businessweek, we don’t look at it in a silo; we look at in the broader role it plays in Bloomberg L.P. The same is true for a lot of our media assets. It’s a much broader perspective on the role of the Businessweek brand.

On the impact of Josh Tyrangiel, Businessweek’s editor, on Bloomberg TV:

Josh began taking on the TV responsibility, plus Businessweek, one month ago, beginning in January, so we’re sort of in the top of the first inning here. But the answer is yes. We’re looking to bring that kind of storytelling to the TV platform.

On how much he sees of Michael Bloomberg:

It is true that we’re working very near each other and he’s very interested in the media business, as he is his entire business.

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.

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.

Janet Paskin Joins Bloomberg Businessweek

Janet Paskin has been named assistant managing editor of Bloomberg Businsessweek and editor of Businessweek.com. Paskin comes to Businessweek from the Wall Street Journal, where she served as digital editor. Previously Paskin was managing editor of SmartMoney.com, from 2010 to 2012.  

“Janet is a talented digital editor who has a great understanding for how to grow strong online and mobile platforms,” said Josh Tyrangiel, editorial director of Bloomberg Digital and editor-in-chief of Businessweek. “Coupled with her background as a financial reporter, she’s the ideal person to lead Businessweek.com and add to the skills of the Bloomberg Businessweek team. We’re thrilled to have her join us.”

Paskin’s first day at Businessweek is November 12.

Ad Age Names Marie Claire Mag of The Year, Josh Tyrangiel Editor Of The Year

Ad Age has lavished praise on Marie Claire and Josh Tyrangielnaming them magazine of the year and editor of the year, respectively. Marie Claire was honored for record setting ad pages in four issues, and for expanding its reach with new products.

“With Chanel as a partner it launched the Backstage Beauty Trends iPad App and Marie Claire @Work, which debuted last year as a saddle-stitched supplement, came back in 2012 with bigger, perfect-bound issues this May and September,” explains Ad Age. Driving that success isNancy Berger CardoneMarie Claire’s publisher and Ad Age’publisher of the year.

While Marie Claire took home those honors, Tyrangiel — the editor-in-chief of Bloomberg Businessweek — has to be happy about being named editor of the year. Tyrangiel believes his writers make him and the magazine look good. “I like that we have journalists who really want to do stories that ask very difficult questions that are sometimes in conflict with the people that we cover,” said Tyrangiel.

Businessweek to Expand in United Kingdom

Bloomberg Businessweek has been doing great things here, so it makes sense that the magazine is expanding its reach abroad. According to the Press Gazette, Businessweek is increasing its circulation in Europe and Asia by 80,000 per week.

Josh Tyrangiel, Businessweek’s editor-in-chief, said that one of the magazines goal’s is to be a truly global brand, and to accomplish that, it needed to up its stake outside of the United States.

Tyrangiel also feels that Businessweek could fill a void by expanding. ”There’s quite a lot of white space, ” he told the Press Gazette. “There are people covering the city, but I don’t think they are covering it in the way we do it and understanding the businesses that exist outside the city.”

Businessweek’s ‘How To’ Issue Features Over 60 Contributors

Bloomberg Businessweek’s first “How To” issue was great, and the second installment only improves upon last year’s. This edition is jam-packed with articles from over 60 different contributors and it spans 44 pages.

The “How To’s” cover all sorts of topics. There is “How to Take a Punch,” by boxing’s best trainer, Freddie Roach, “How to Dress for Work,” by Michael Kors, “How to Motivate People,” by Rahm Emanuel and there’s even “How to Do a To Do,” by Martha Stewart.

The latest issue — available April 13 — is also the 100th since Josh Tyrangiel and Richard Turley took over and revamped the entire magazine. So far so good, we’d say.

Josh Tyrangiel on Businessweek: ‘The Target Audience is Me’

You have to hand it to Josh Tyrangiel, the Editor-in-Chief of Bloomberg Businessweek, the guy knows what he’s doing. His magazine is all the rage right now because he consistently gives readers high quality content presented in an interesting way. He’s talked about how this process happens before, and last Thursday he expanded on it during a talk with Columbia students.

WWD reports that Tyrangiel (Creative Director Richard Turley also spoke) explained to the audience that the he maintains a magazine that people want to read because he makes sure that it’s one that he would want to flip through first:

Businessweek Revamps Website

The days of Bloomberg Businessweek magazine looking a hell of a lot better than its website are officially over. Businessweek.com used to be boring and complicated to navigate — basically the exact opposite of the print counterpart — but now it’s vibrant, clean and inviting. The new look is thanks to Richard Turley, Businessweek’s Creative Director, who routinely makes the magazine a must see.

We’re happy it has changed. We would routinely stay away from its site because of the clutter, but with a revamp, Josh Tyrangiel, the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, said things are different now. “We’ve completely realigned the culture of Businessweek so it’s a digital news organization, he told Adweek. “People have turned on the juice.”

UPDATE:
A Businessweek spokesperson wanted us to note that it wasn’t just Turley who is responsible for the new site; he worked on it along with a team of people. Now you know.
