Bloomberg News Adds Two Executive Editors

Bloomberg News editor-in-chief Matthew Winkler announced today that David Shipley and James P. Rubin have been named executive editors and will spearhead the launch of an editorial page called The Bloomberg View.  In their new roles Shipley and Rubin will oversee the creation of content and commentary across all of Bloomberg’s platforms.

Shipley comes from The New York Times where he served as deputy editorial page editor and op-ed editor.  Rubin is a former U.S. Department of State assistant secretary.  Winkler is confident he chose the right two men for the job:

David Shipley and Jamie Rubin bring incomparable experience and skill to the mandate of developing the Bloomberg View consistent with the values and beliefs of our global company and its internationally-minded founder, Michael R. Bloomberg.  David and Jamie have no peers as an editorial duo addressing the most important issues with a pragmatic sensibility that embraces the diverse challenges of the world.

While both are Winkler’s supervision, Shipley will manage editorial matters in the U.S. and Canada leaving Rubin to handle Central and South America, Mexico, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.

The Who’s Who of Media at Sun Valley

Dan Cox, on special assignment for FishbowlLA, covering the 2008 Sun Valley Media Conference.

SV2008y.jpgThough Allen & Company are extremely tight-lipped about everything of interest at the Sun Valley Media Conference, a few small bits and pieces are leaking out on the first day.

A list of attendees surfaced and included such mega-moguls as Paul G. Allen of Vulcan Inc., Emilio Azcarraga of Grupo Televisa, National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, independent writer Ken Auletta, BET chairman and CEO Debra L. Lee, Diane von Furstenberg of her eponymous studio, National Basketball Association Commissioner David J. Stern and Chicago Bulls and Chicago White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf.

Weirder still was the inclusion of celebrity chef Rachael Ray, of Watch Entertainment Inc. The assembled media standing outside the Sun Valley Lodge joke that she might be here to cook dinner for all these moguls.

In true Allen & Co. behavior, the list of those invited also had a schedule, which carefully omitted anything specific with just early morning discussion or meeting events labeled as simply “Presentation.” After that came, “White Water Raft Trip,” “Golf at the Sun Valley Golf Course” and “Biking, Fly-Fishing, Hiking, Trail Rides” and “Yoga.”

Those moguls sure know how to do it right.
