Apple scoop machine Mark Gurman goes to Bloomberg

“Over the last few years, Mark Gurman has made a name for himself as the go-to guy for Apple product scoops,” Noah Kulwin reports for Bloomberg. “And now he’s taking his talents to Bloomberg.”

“Gurman has broken stories on the iPad, Siri and almost every other device in the Apple catalogue,” Kulwin reports. “Tech Insider reported earlier today that Gurman was leaving his perch at 9to5Mac. According to a memo sent to Bloomberg staff from editor Brad Stone, he will be joining Bloomberg to cover consumer products, including those made by Apple rivals like Google and Amazon.”

Kulwin reports, “Gurman graduated from the University of Michigan last month, and he will be based in San Francisco.”

MacDailyNews Take: Congratulations and the best of luck, Mark!

Apple reporter Mark Gurman is leaving 9to5Mac – June 1, 2016

  1. I’m happy for Mark personally/professionally, but it’s a big loss for Apple-centric sites like 9-to-5Mac. There are so few really reliable Apple sources that aren’t just ‘repeater’ type Apple news sources. Hope he can still maintain that level of quality at a higher profile/corp entity like Bloomberg. I’m curious to see if it will still be a Apple-focused or a broader tech industry type role at BB..

  2. Bloomberg is the better choice for business news. CNBC stands for the Conservative NutBall Channel- the high church of Ayn Rand. They did not tone down the right wing bullshit even when then owner General Electric was rescued from bankruptcy with TARP money.

    The fact he is a University of Michigan alum is no surprise. Michigan was and is a Mac friendly place and grads have done great things in IT- including at Apple.

    Godfather of the iPod and first 3 generations of the iPhone Tony Fadell, Skype co-founder Niklas Zennström, Google co-founder Larry Page, Groupon co-founder Brad Keywell, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, and Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster are among the list.

  3. It will be interesting to see how does a blogger adapt to a traditional media outlet. There are various sorts of rules in place that constrain writing style. It is a great to see such moves, though. The cross-pollination between traditional media and blogosphere certainly can’t hurt.

    1. As long as it still includes spelling correctly and using proper grammar. There are far too many “writers” online now who have no grasp of either. Just because spell check replaces something doesn’t mean it’s correct.
