Growing a business from one employee to more than 3,000 in three decades is a notable achievement, regardless of what field you’re in.
Journalist and entrepreneur Matthew Winkler did just that at Bloomberg News.
When billionaire businessman and 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg had the idea of starting a financial news organization back in 1989, his first hire was Winkler, who at the time was a reporter with The Wall Street Journal.
Winkler signed on as editor-in-chief in February 1990 and proceeded to build Bloomberg News into a global news and money-making juggernaut.
Host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart joined Winkler at Bloomberg’s Manhattan headquarters earlier this month to talk about Winkler’s journey and what other entrepreneurs can learn from his experience.
Dean’s interview with Winkler was conducted as part of Dean’s special “News Luminaries” project, honoring journalists who have had – or are having – exemplary careers. Beginning on Thursday, March 12th, and each week thereafter, Dean will post an oral history with a prominent 21st century journalist at www.NewsLuminaries.com.
Other journalists participating in the oral history podcast include: Andrew Ross-Sorkin of The New York Times and CNBC; Randall Lane, chief content officer of Forbes; Steve Adler, editor-in-chief of Reuters; Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business News; and Charles Duhigg, best-selling author of The Power of Habit, and now a writer for The New Yorker.
If your company or professional practice would like to help support www.NewsLuminaries.com, contact Dean directly at 303-296-1200 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In high school and college, Ruben Gonzalez displayed hardly a lick of athletic talent. Yet he dreamed of becoming an Olympian and being counted among the elite athletes of the world.
That he did.
From benchwarmer to recordholder, Ruben made courage and perseverance his mantra, and went on to become the only Olympic athlete ever to compete in four Olympic games in four different decades – most recently in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, at age 47.
These days Ruben is a much-in-demand corporate speaker and author, translating his strategies for success from the icy luge track to the fast-paced, often icy business and career world.
Reputation coach and host Dean Rotbart recently visited with Ruben at his home near the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Hear Dean’s gold-medal report this week on Monday Morning Radio.

If you love larger-than-life personalities, you’ll enjoy hearing Dave Thorell’s colorful reflections on his career at KRVN 880 Rural Radio in Lexington, Nebraska.
