Geddes was one of the three top Times editors for a decade before accepting a buyout in 2013. He spent 13 years at the Wall Street Journal before joining the Times in 1994 as business editor. Geddes is coming out of retirement to take on the role of U.S. political editor at Bloomberg.
“I’m very excited to be joining Bloomberg’s team covering one of the most chaotic, competitive and historic elections of the past decades and looking forward to building Bloomberg's coverage through and beyond 2016,” Geddes said in a statement.
Geddes will also work closely with Bloomberg Politics executive editor Mike Nizza, who will continue overseeing the site and working to integrate it with Bloomberg.com.
