Interviews include BlackRock’s Larry Fink, Morgan Stanley’s James Gorman, Carlyle Group’s David Rubenstein and Citigroup’s Michael Corbat, to name just a few
Over two decades Schatzker has covered everything from technology to commodities on assignments around the world.
Erik Schatzker is an editor-at-large with Bloomberg Television in New York, where he specializes in long-form interviews, enterprise reporting and special events.
Schatzker developed and hosts Bloomberg’s Front Row series of in-depth conversations with the most powerful, interesting and influential figures in finance — a dynamic cast of characters that ranges from innovation icon Cathie Wood to Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro.
Since joining Bloomberg TV in 2007, he has reported from across the globe and gained exclusive access to heads of state and business leaders for stories on camera and in print. Schatzker landed the first interview with Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal after his release from detention in the now-infamous Riyadh Ritz-Carlton and played a key role in Bloomberg’s definitive coverage of the market-shaking collapse of investment firm Archegos. He also contributes regularly to Bloomberg Businessweek.
Previously, Schatzker was a reporter, editor, bureau chief and manager at Bloomberg News, where his coverage of Lucent, the onetime tech darling, and Refco, the failed commodity broker, won journalism awards.
A Canadian, he graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in history and began his career with the South Pacific Mail in Santiago, Chile.
