When we picked up a copy of the newly redesigned Bloomberg Businessweek this morning, the first thing we looked at was the masthead.The magazine’s endured two rounds of layoffs since last September. And 37-year-old Josh Tyrangiel has added some high profile names to his editorial roster since taking over as editor in November.
