Sara Eisen, Justin Dial Leave Bloomberg TV

BLOOMBERG-tv-LOGOTVNewser has learned about a handful of notable departures from Bloomberg Television recently.

Justin Dial, who joined Bloomberg in 2011 as head of U.S. newsgathering, has joined Al Jazeera America as deputy head of newsgathering. In his new role, he will report to Marcy McGinnis, Al Jazeera America’s senior vice president of newsgathering.

Another recent departure from Bloomberg TV is Sara Eisen, who anchored “Bloomberg Surveillance” alongside Tom Keene. Eisen announced on Twitter she will join CNBC on December 16.

TVNewser hears there have been other departures from the network recently, including a show producer who is leaving for Fox Business and Chris Berend head of digital video, is joining CNN. Andrew Morse, who had been the head of U.S. television for Bloomberg left for CNN in August.

Under the leadership of newly-installed CEO Justin Smith, Bloomberg Media Group is the midst of a 100-day review as “a strategic planning exercise to map our future course,” according to AdWeek. Bloomberg Businessweek editor Josh Tyrangiel has temporarily moved to the TV side. And as TVSpy reported, the company is ending production of its local market reports, seen on nearly 200 stations across the country.

Bloomberg TV’s New Lineup Launches Tomorrow

Back in April we noted that Bloomberg TV would be shaking up its daytime lineup after the departure of Margaret Brennan. Now we have a date for the new lineup: tomorrow, Monday June 18th.

What are the changes? A refresher:

A simulcast of Tom Keene‘s radio program “Surveillance” which airs from 6-8amET replacing “Inside Track” which was hosted by Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle

Betty Liu will continue to anchor “In the Loop” from 8-10amET. Then, Schatzker and Ruhle will host a new show at 10am, replacing Brennan’s “In Business.”

We have more details now: Keene’s show will actually be an all-new show across TV, radio and digital, not just a simulcast of his existing radio show. In addition Bloomberg is launching a new noon show called “Lunch Money.”

Margaret Brennan leaving Bloomberg TV as Net Shakes Up Mornings

Margaret Brennan, who has been with Bloomberg TV for nearly three years, is leaving the network, TVNewser has learned. Brennan joined Bloomberg from CNBC in 2009. Brennan’s departure, described as mutual, comes as the network plans changes to its morning lineup later this Spring.

Andrew Morse, head of U.S. TV for Bloomberg, says the changes are a continuation of Bloomberg’s “evolution into a digital, multi-platform news organization.” The changes have included a round of staff cuts as well as the posting of new positions, last month.

The programming shifts include a simulcast of Tom Keene‘s radio program “Surveillance” which airs from 6-8amET replacing “Inside Track” which was hosted by Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle.

“It’s not just doing TV on the radio,” Morse tells TVNewser, “but a true multi-media program.” The show will stream on Bloomberg.com and on the Bloomberg TV+ and Radio+ tablet apps. Keene will be joined by Sara Eisen, Scarlet Fu and Ken Prewitt.

Betty Liu will continue to anchor “In the Loop” from 8-10amET. Then, Schatzker and Ruhle will host a new show at 10am, replacing Brennan’s “In Business.”

In a Media Beat interview last summer, Brennan told us about her decision to leave CNBC for Bloomberg, and also hinted at a true passion: international reporting. Brennan’s final day hosting “In Business” is this Friday.

Keene’s NoonET program goes away and will be replaced by a what Morse calls a “high-profile ensemble cast” who will be assessing the market at Midday.

There are also three Bloomberg TV personalities on it: economics editor Linda Yueh, “Bloomberg Surveillance” host Tom Keene and markets reporter Sara Eisen.

Bloomberg’s Tom Keene: ‘Because of My Workload, There’s Just a Lot of Black Coffee’

Bloomberg News editor-at-large Tom Keene opens up to New York magazine this week about his diet: the “healthy and then less-than healthy” options in the Bloomberg TV pantry, what restaurant he sits at to write his blog and how to make the perfect cocktail. The “Surveillance Midday” anchor, who also co-hosts the morning show on Bloomberg radio, also talks about how difficult it is to get a good meal in while trying to deliver the news:

[Radio co-host] Ken Prewitt and I do the show, and I have breakfast during the nine o’clock hour. A classic kind of Winston Churchill breakfast: scrambled eggs, sausage, English muffin toasted twice, home fries. And I eat about half that because I’m on live. So, I can be talking about Euro, Yen, or the president’s economic policy, and I got a sausage in my mouth. The major goal of power breakfast is to not spill scrambled eggs on Ken Prewitt.

Nets Prepare for Monday Markets with Sunday Specials

After a day of Saturday specials on the cablers, the networks are gearing up for the Asian markets opening later today and the opening of Wall Street tomorrow following Friday’s S&P downgrade of the U.S. CNN’s special coverage continues tonight with a 9pmET special hosted by Christine Romans. Fox Business will produce a 2-hour special tonight at 9pmET hosted by Gerri Willis. Also, at 8pmET Bloomberg Television presents a two-hour live report anchored by Tom Keene and Adam Johnson.

CNBC’s also got a special on at 8pmET called “Markets in Turmoil.” As part of it, CNBC’s Chief Washington Correspondent John Harwood will speak with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner who announced today he’s staying with the Obama Administration through the election.

This morning on “Meet the Press” former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan said, “What I think the S&P thing did was to hit a nerve that there’s something basically bad going on and it’s hit the self esteem of the United States. The psyche. And it’s having a much profounder effect than I conceived could happen, because the economics of what they’re talking about is very clear.”

Cable News Channels, Anchors and Reporters Pay Tribute to CNBC’s Mark Haines

The news of CNBC anchor Mark Haines‘ death has been reverberating through the TV news business, and a number of other cable news channels took time out of their programming to pay tribute.

On Fox News Channel, former CNBC anchor Martha MacCallum said of Haines on “America’s Newsroom”: “He will be missed by so many in this business, he was one of the pioneers of the financial business news coverage, and a great market reporter, who worked at the stock exchange for many years and we will miss him.”

On CNBC competitor Fox Business Network, Stuart Varney reported the news at 10 AM, and had Nicole Petallides get the reaction from the New York Stock Exchange floor:
