Reuters hires former Bloomberg editor

Reuters has just named a new Asia investigative editor: Peter Hirschberg, who is based in Hong Kong. He was most recently at Bloomberg News, where he served as deputy managing editor in charge of Asia economy and government, but resigned after their Hong Kong operations did not publish stories critical of people connected to the Chinese government.

"Honored and excited to be joining @Reuters as Asia Investigative Editor," Hirschberg shares on Twitter.

"Big news in journalism. Reuters hires @phirschberg1 as Asia investigative editor. Peter was lead Asia ed. for Xi family exposé at Bloomberg," tweets Mike Forsythe at the New York Times.
