Former hedge fund manager Cory Johnson is returning to journalism as the latest anchor at Bloomberg Television.
Johnson, who worked at Kingsford Capital until 2006 and has recently managed his own money, will co-anchor Bloomberg's new West Coast program, focusing on technology, new media and Silicon Valley. Emily Chang will be his co-anchor.
Johnson is no stranger to journalism, having been a founding reporter for TheStreet.com and a reporter at Time magazine. He was also a senior editor at Vibe magazine and served as CNBC's first Silicon Valley correspondent.
Johnson joined Bloomberg last week and has made appearances on the channel from its New York headquarters. The still-unnamed West Coast show will originate from San Francisco.
