Bloomberg Businessweek reporter Gruley to retire

Bryan Gruley

Bryan Gruley, a reporter at large for Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Businessweek, is retiring.

He has been with the news organization since September 2011, writing big features about everything from oil to hockey, from John Deere to Kim Dotcom, from yogurt to marijuana.

Gruley was previously the Chicago bureau chief of The Wall Street Journal, where he worked for 25 years. He shared the Journal’s Pulitzer Price for coverage of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Gruley is also a book author. His latest book is “Purgatory Bay,” which came out earlier this year. He also wrote the Starvation Lake trilogy — “Starvation Lake,” “The Hanging Tree” and “The Skeleton Box.” The debut book, “Starvation Lake,” was an Edgar finalist and won Anthony, Barry and Strand awards.”
