Bloomberg News making push in Canada

by

Bloomberg News is expanding its operations in Canada in an attempt to take market share away from its competitors, reports Tamara Baluja of the Canadian Journalism Project.

Baluja writes, “According to the most recent comScore results, Bloomberg ranks ‘a distant eight’ among online business websites in Canada—well behind ROB, Yahoo, MSN, Forbes, AOL and Dow Jones. And as Yahoo! Canada reported, ‘…for most in the business world, the name Bloomberg means terminals, the roughly $20,000-a-year computers many professional traders use to track the market … the journalism serves largely as a companion piece to the market data, providing investors with some context and analysis to accompany their trades.’

“Scanlan told J-Source that Canada has increasingly become a priority for Bloomberg.

“‘The world is starting to take notice of Canada,’ he said. ‘During the recession, the Canadian economy shone really well, and there’s a lot happening here that has impact elsewhere globally.’

“Take Calgary, for example, where Bloomberg has expanded its staff to three to cover energy and oil sands. Or Winnipeg, where the company positioned a correspondent for the first time last year, to cover agriculture.

“There are now 30 reporters and editors working for Bloomberg across the country, including several well-known journalists, such as Ottawa bureau chief Theophilos Argitis, recently named one of the 100 most powerful and influential people in Ottawa by the Hill Times, and Toronto bureau chief Jacqueline Thorpe, who worked for several years as a senior editor at Financial Post.

“Bloomberg also has reporters in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver and Montreal—and at press time, had job postings up for two more reporters.”

The successful candidate will be confident taking apart an earnings statement, chasing an M&A story and profiling low-income Medicaid patients to tell the broad story of medical care in America. The beat will involve a mix of breaking news and enterprise. Ability to translate the jargon and complexity of the Affordable Care Act is essential.

Former Bloomberg News staffer to appeal wrong termination decision

by

A former editor and reporter who had sued Bloomberg LP on a variety of provisions claiming she was downgraded from her old job as a fourth-level editor after she returned from her pregnancy leave in 2012 will appeal a court’s decision that she was not wrongfully terminated, reports Keith Kelly of the New York Post.

Kelly writes, “While she was still working at Bloomberg LP, Adria Cimino filed suit in December 2012 with the conseil de prud’hommes, the French Labor court, seeking payment of a 13th month, seniority pay and overtime pay.

“In April 2013, she was fired and added ‘wrongful termination’ to the suit.

“In a December decision, she won the first three counts, but lost the wrongful-termination claim.

“Bloomberg LP had argued on the seniority bonus that it was not a press agency and therefore should not be governed by national laws governing journalists pay, and instead argued the amount should be based on the minimum wage.

“The court also ruled that since Cimino ‘badged in and out’ of the office, Bloomberg could not claim that it was unaware that she was working overtime.”

Bloomberg Pursuits makes bigger push

by

Bloomberg Pursuits magazine is trying to make a push for a broader audience, writes Alexandra Steigrad of Women’s Wear Daily.

Steigrad writes, “According to Pursuits editor Ted Moncreiff, the title is trying to extend its reach into the women’s fashion market, despite the fact that 60 percent of the magazine’s readers are men. ‘There’s a lot in here for both sexes,’ Moncreiff said of the spring issue, pointing to the fashion spread shot in the United Nations, following the final stages of the building’s $2.1 billion renovation.

“The issue, which will be released by March 15, features a stronger fashion angle, albeit a ‘Bloomberg-ized’ one that centers on workwear.

“Although it isn’t the first recent fashion shoot at the UN — Vogue shot National Security Advisor Susan Rice in its September issue — Moncreiff noted that what’s interesting is that Pursuits was able to gain access to key locations, such as the Security Council Chamber, post-facelift. ‘Nothing was off-limits,’ said the editor, who admitted that convincing the UN to allow Pursuits in to shoot took four ‘long’ months of negotiation.

“Shot by Ralph Mecke on Jan. 9 and 10, the spread depicts scenes from inside the halls of the UN, as well as in front of UN Plaza, and it accompanies a feature on the renovation penned by Justin Davidson.”
