Arik Hesseldahl left Recode this month. Recode EIC Dan Frommer tells us there's no replacement lined up yet. Meanwhile, PR pros anxiously watch and wait, for enterprise reporters are scarcer than ever. FierceMarkets laid off several last month. IDG has lost a few through resignations and did not replace them.
It'll cost you $750, but you might want to consider attending the 3rd annual Bloomberg Businessweek Design Conference set for Apr. 28 in San Francisco. From a PR standpoint, you might be able to buttonhole journalists from Bloomberg's news and broadcast operations as they interview and report, principally for the print/tablet Bloomberg Businessweek design issue due in May.
Surviving and thriving at Bloomberg's BusinessWeek is veteran reporter Peter Burrows.
Join us as Peter discusses the kinds of pieces he's aiming to write in 2010, whether they differ from those he wrote for McGraw-Hill, whether Bloomberg BusinessWeek's print priorities have changed with the addition of Bloomberg's journalists, and how tech PR pros can make Peter's job just a little bit easier.

Some edit outlets accept B-roll, but what kind and under what circumstances? And what must clients do to succeed in the video era? You'll be surprised at how easy it can be.
