Susan Goldberg has resigned as Editor in Chief of the Plain Dealer to join Bloomberg as an executive editor.
Susan Goldberg, editor of The Plain Dealer, will join Bloomberg News as an Executive Editor to oversee the expansion of state and local government reporting, Editor in Chief Matthew Winkler announced today.
“Susan is a distinguished and accomplished editor who will lead the growth of our state and municipal government reporting in the U.S.”
Goldberg will be based in San Francisco. Her new role will reinforce Bloomberg’s continued commitment to West Coast reporting, especially California, as well as state and local government issues across the country.
As the Editor of The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Goldberg led the news staff and editorial/opinion operation and oversaw major strategic initiatives, including significant watchdog reporting and ongoing work to transform the newspaper into a digital information company. Under Goldberg’s leadership, The Plain Dealer, Ohio’s largest newspaper, was honored with four Pulitzer Prize finalists, the American Society of News Editors Non-Deadline Writing Award and the Headliner Award for Innovation, among others.
The move is part of a global growth strategy by Bloomberg News to increase reporting resources in the U.S. and in emerging markets.
“Susan is a distinguished and accomplished editor who will lead the growth of our state and municipal government reporting in the U.S.," Winkler said. “She is uniquely qualified to bring transparency to an initiative where so much is at stake for investors and taxpayers."
