Ed Greenspon has been appointed the Canadian editor-at-large of Bloomberg. His primary focus will be expanding the company’s investigative and explanatory journalism in Canada.  

“Bloomberg has a business model capable of supporting great reporting and the ambition to be the best wherever it competes,” said Greenspon in a statement. “Canada can use more serious journalism. I’m excited to be asked to help with that objective.”

In the past two years, Bloomberg has increased its Canadian news staff by 50 per cent, primarily in Toronto, expanded its office in Calgary and added a correspondent in Winnipeg for the first time.

Greenspon was the Toronto Star’s vice-president of business development when he left the company in December. Previously, he was editor-in-chief of The Globe and Mail for seven years and the Prairie bureau chief of the Financial Post.
