where they’re hiring journalists

Washington, D.C.  That’s where the money is and that’s where there’s a strong and growing appetite for specialized information. Bloomberg, for example, will hire 100 reporters for its Bgov.com venture.  David Carr, a Times columnist who will be an upcoming class speaker, notes today that DC is a center for new business models in the news business, quoting one expert:

“I think that Politico’s entrance entirely changed what had been a pretty cozy market with a few incumbents — National Journal, CQ and Roll Call — and kudos to them for demonstrating there was a market beyond the Beltway,” he said. “In addition to the deeper analytics we are known for, we also need to play outside the firewall with up-to-the-minute news because that is where much of the conversation is occurring.”
