Bloomberg Television’s new morning show, Bloomberg Go, which debuts Monday at 7 a.m., will be hosted by David Westin. After many years behind the scenes in television, Westin will step in front of the camera for three hours each weekday morning. He and co-anchor Stephanie Ruhle will talk about the day’s news filtered for a business audience.
The former president of ABC News, along with Bloomberg anchor Stephanie Ruhle, will host Bloomberg Go, a new morning show scheduled to launch Oct. 5 on Bloomberg TV. Bloomberg hopes the show will cultivate a crowd beyond traders seeking tips before the U.S. stock market opens, such as financial executives in Hong Kong or business leaders seeking new ideas from video delivered via tablet or smartphone.
Bloomberg Television announced today that it had hired David Westin as an on-air personality, where he will start later this month.
David Westin, the former ABC News president, is tapped as president-CEO of the News Licensing Group, the new organization created by the Associated Press to license original news content to digital communications products and services.
David Westin announced he was leaving his position as ABC News president two months ago, saying at the time that he’d stay “through the end of the year.” There have been several reports about potential candidates, but while interviews have taken place internally and externally, the position remains unfilled and we hear there’s still no obvious front-runner.
