You are comfortable contributing to a variety of platforms, from the terminal and web to radio, podcasts and television.

We’ll trust you to:

  • Generate a wealth of story ideas
  • Break news and follow with carefully crafted narratives
  • Report with speed and accuracy
  • Build and develop deep sourcing in the industry
  • Prepare content for Bloomberg’s diverse media, from podcasts to newsletters
