Bloomberg has hired Dan Colarusso as its managing editor for U.S. television. It will be interesting to see how an editor known for his bright-burning departures melds with the combustible financial news company.
After working 12-hour days, six days a week as the New York Post's metro editor, Colarusso made a loud, surprise departure, walking out of the tabloid's newsroom one night. Then there was his stint as managing editor of Business Insider, which ended after just four months, a departure noted by Reuters blogger Felix Salmon. There's a chance the intensely competitive newsroom at Bloomberg will be a good fit for Colarusso; if it isn't, we trust his colleagues will be made promptly aware of that.
