Bloomberg LP has announced new changes to its editorial team, including the creation of a new “editorial management committee” composed of editor-in-chief John Micklethwait, deputy editor-in-chief Reto Gregori, and new editorial chief content officer Josh Tyrangiel, All main editors will now report directly to this committee, according to FisbowlNY.

In addition, Bloomberg will physically move its digital news section next to the journalists who write for Bloomberg News. “That will mean we have one unified newsroom with people who write in real time sitting beside each other,” wrote Micklethwait in a memo outlining the changes.

In a memo obtained by FishbowlNY, Micklethwait said:

Media CEO Justin Smith and I have collaborated closely on the editorial reorganization within Media specifically. The editorial heads in our Media businesses — Claudia [Milne for Broadcast], Josh Topolsky, Al [Mayers for Radio], Stephanie [Mehta for Events] and the magazine part of Josh Tyrangiel — will also have a business reporting line to Justin, where appropriate. I will now serve as the editorial lead in Justin’s Media management team, and Josh Topolsky and I will attend his weekly meetings. Justin and I will work together on strategy for all our Bloomberg Media properties.

Correction: A previous version of this story misspelled the name of Reto Gregori.
