Today my friend Barry Ritholtz announced that he has joined Bloomberg View (and Radio) as a commenter and a columnist. Of course that means he is going to be on TV more and that is fantastic because he is one of more erudite thinkers and commenters on money markets. Our here on the West Coast they have Emily Chang who anchors Bloomberg West (with Cory Johnson) and has a stable of regulars such as Paul Kedrosky, Jon Erlichman and Brad Stone that have turned her show into must-see-money-tv! Plus they have Tom Keene! I think they are becoming a thinking-person’s financial network. I like where they are going and why I enjoy being on the show with Emily!
