Vice Taps Bloomberg Alum Josh Tyrangiel to Run HBO Daily Newscast

Vice Media has enlisted Bloomberg alum Josh Tyrangiel to spearhead production of the daily half-hour news program that is in the works for HBO. It’s expected to debut early next year.

Tyrangiel’s move to Vice Media was rumored following his exit earlier this month as chief content officer for Bloomberg and editor of Bloomberg Businessweek. Vice said Wednesday that Tyrangiel will “lead the overall direction and daily execution of the daily news show, including the style, format, programming and story development.”

Vice said the show would consist of five half-hour programs per week and feature “the kind of original, on-the-ground reporting that has become a hallmark of Vice’s approach.” But details on the format and focus of the program are still sparse. The plans for a daily news telecast will be a first in HBO’s nearly 45-year history.

Before joining Bloomberg in 2009, Tyrangiel was deputy managing editor of Time magazine and managing editor of Time.com.

Josh Tyrangiel has deep journalism experience, but he also has the confidence to rewrite the rules, just as he did at Bloomberg and Time,” said Vice co-founder and CEO Shane Smith. “The nightly news show we’re creating is going to take news programming in a totally new direction, and it needs the leadership of an expert who’s hungry to do things differently. Josh is the perfect fit, and we couldn’t me more excited to have him.”

Vice is already in business with HBO on the weekly newsmagazine-style program “Vice.”

Michael Lombardo, HBO’s original programming chief, cited Tyrangiel’s “experience, intelligence and passion” as making him :uniquely positioned to helm our journey with Vice in delivering a daily news show for the 21st century.”

Tyrangiel enthused: “I can’t think of a more interesting job in journalism, and I can’t wait to get started.”
