Bloomberg View to Launch Tomorrow

Last we heard, Bloomberg View, Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to spread the Gospel Of Bloomberg after he leaves us as Mayor, was going to launch at the end of this month. Today Adweek cites a source claiming that the day of reckoning will actually be tomorrow, along with some other insights:

Bloomberg View’s first columns will come from Ron Klain, the former chief of staff to Vice Presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden; author William Cohan; and Tufts international politics professor Vali Nasr. Bloomberg News writers Margaret Carlson, William Pesek, Paul Kedrosky, and Amity Shlaes will also have columns out late Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

Prepare yourselves: The dawn of a new era in Bloomberg’s world is almost upon us. The question – as always – is if anyone will actually pay attention.

Bloomberg View Aiming for Late May Launch

Bloomberg View – Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to flex some opinionated muscle – is going to launch in late May. According to Keith Kelly, in anticiaption of that fast aprroaching date, the venture has added some new names.

In addition to the many recent hires that FishbowlNY has covered, Kelly says that Bloomberg View will bring the nomadic Michael Kinsley and the former Wall Street Journal News Editor George Anders on as Editorial Board members, as well as author William Cohan and Ron Klain, a man who served as Chief of Staff for both Al Gore and Joe Biden.

That’s some heavy lifting by Bloomberg. More evidence that he is going to make sure people pay attention to Bloomberg View one way or another.
