Bloomberg News hires four Pulitzer winners with Wall Street Journal ties

Bloomberg News today announced it was hiring three four Pulitzer-prize winning journalists with ties to the Wall Street Journal, underscoring the media company's strategy for scooping up talent amid widespread media layoffs.

The company, founded by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, picked up former Journal deputy managing editor Daniel Hertzberg, who left the paper after 32 years in June. His duties had included managing the paper's overseas editions and foreign bureaus. Hertzberg will report to Matthew Winkler, a former Journal colleague who is now the editor-in-chief of the news service. The two worked together at the business newspaper. He will be senior editor-at-large for finance and markets
