December 15, 2010

NEW YORK — David Shipley and James P. Rubin will join Bloomberg
News as Executive Editors starting in January, Editor in Chief
Matthew Winkler announced today.

Shipley, deputy editorial page editor and op-ed editor of The
New York Times, and Rubin, former U.S. Department of State
Assistant Secretary, will lead a new Editorial Page called the
Bloomberg View which will publish columns and commentary across
all Bloomberg platforms.

Rubin will oversee editorial issues in Central and South
America, Mexico, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, and
Shipley will maintain oversight of the U.S. and Canada. Both
will report directly to Winkler.

“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,” Winkler
said. “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.”

“I look forward to joining Bloomberg at a time when rational
thought and commentary in the media is needed now more than ever
before,” Rubin said. “There is an urgent need for ideology-free,
empirically-based editorial positions about the pressing issues
of our time, and we plan to deliver them.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining Bloomberg to work on its growing
opinion report,” Shipley said. “The company has a special vision
for journalism, commentary and for its own editorial voice. I’m
eager to get started.”
