You may remember that we’ve introduced you to all the women of Bloomberg before.But since then, the network has brought in some new faces and said goodbye to some more familiar ones.

No worries though, it’s still a collection of smart, talented journalists committed to giving you hard news on markets, Wall Street, politics and more.
