Enter the Editor of Dramatic Exits

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.
