Jared Sandberg Joins Bloomberg

May 27, 2011

New York — Bloomberg today announced that Jared Sandberg will be
joining the company as editor of Bloomberg.com. Sandberg will
report to Josh Tyrangiel, editorial director of Bloomberg
Digital and editor of Bloomberg Businessweek.

“Jared has great journalistic skills and a passion for the web,”
Tyrangiel said. “His ability to blend those things makes him the
ideal person to lead Bloomberg.com.”

Sandberg joins Bloomberg from The Wall Street Journal, where he
spent nearly 20 years reporting and editing stories on
technology, politics, religion, science, the environment, and
personal finance. He started in 1991 and later became the
Journal’s first Internet beat reporter covering the emergence of
the new medium. Most recently, he was banking and finance editor
covering trends and developments including the foreclosure
crisis and the cost of the financial meltdown. Sandberg also
conceived and wrote the Journal’s weekly column Cubicle Culture,
satirizing office life.

Prior to rejoining the Journal in October 2000, Sandberg was a
senior technology writer for Newsweek magazine, authoring news
and features including cover stories “How Bill Blew It” and
“Citizen Case.” Sandberg began his journalism career as an
intern for the MacNeil Lehrer NewsHour in 1990 and became an
associate producer.

In 2003, Sandberg was a member of a team of Journal reporters
awarded the 2003 Pulitzer Prize in Explanatory Writing “for its
clear, concise and comprehensive stories that illuminated the
roots, significance and impact of corporate scandals in
America.” Sandberg also shared a 2003 Gerald Loeb award for
“WorldCom’s Whirlwind Demise” in the category of Deadline
Writing and the 2003 Society of American Business Editors and
Writers award for the “What’s Wrong” series about how companies
hide executive compensation.
