I'm through at BusinessWeek

November 19, 2009News

I just took the elevator to the 46th floor and got my termination from BusinessWeek. Bloomberg has not offered me a job, and I'll be leaving this one, after nearly 23 years, on Dec. 1.

This was not a big surprise for me. I had made clear my mixed feelings. So off I go. It doesn't mean I won't be sad to leave, and today is a wrenching day to be in our offices. People troop upstairs and come back carrying different kinds of envelopes.

I'll be looking for all kinds of opportunities, from freelance assignments to (hopefully) another book. I actually have one last BusinessWeek story to write today, but starting next week I'll be on the hunt. Here's my resume.
