The Bloomberg Deal

October 16, 2009

After much speculation McGraw-Hill has agreed to sell BusinessWeek to Bloomberg LP. No, we aren’t going to share any juicy details here. Instead, we want to use the sale process to illustrate how Business Exchange helps you stay on top of topics that matter to your professional life.

Mid-July, McGraw-Hill announced that it was exploring “strategic options” for BusinessWeek. Rumors and reports abounded. To keep up on the latest news of the impending sale, we all flocked to the McGraw-Hill and Business Exchange topics, where colleagues and other users added all the content they could find. The BX topics are an easy place to find the latest news on the sale. It is also great to see what some of our colleagues are saying in response to the reports.

When news of the sale was confirmed, the Bloomberg LP topic was quickly created. As you can imagine, the topic is filled with all the news of the sale and much speculation on the merged companies. So if you are curious about what the Bloomberg-BusinessWeek combo will look like, stay active in these topics and add any content you find. We’ll see you there!
