UPDATED: FCC Upholds Bloomberg TV’s Right To Be Grouped With News Channels On Comcast

Washington, DC, April 25, 2013–Bloomberg L.P. today announced that David Plouffe, former campaign manager and White House senior advisor to President Obama, has joined the company as contributor and strategic advisor for Bloomberg Television.

As contributor, Plouffe will appear regularly on Bloomberg Television to offer analysis and commentary on political and business issues as they impact the intersection of Wall Street, Main Street and K Street and will lend his expertise to the discussion of technology, demographic changes and crisis management. In addition, Plouffe, widely hailed as the architect of President Obama’s two victories, will serve in an advisory capacity for the network.

“I am excited for both the on and off air relationship with Bloomberg,” said Plouffe. “Their programming lends itself to fuller discussion, which given the complexity of the issues before our country, is of great value.”

“David has one of the sharpest political minds in the nation,” said Andrew Morse, head of Bloomberg Television in the United States. “We’re thrilled he’s joining the Bloomberg team to provide his unique insight and analysis to our coverage of business and politics.”
