David Gura is the anchor of "Bloomberg Markets: The Trump Economy" on Bloomberg Television, weekdays from 1-2pm ET and also co-anchors "Bloomberg Surveillance" on Bloomberg Radio, weekdays from 7-10am ET. He is based in New York.
Recently, Gura reported from Beijing, Bogota, and Mexico City. In 2015, he was on the ground in Athens, covering a debate over austerity measures, when protests erupted in Syntagma Square. Ahead of the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, he filed reports on reconstruction from the Gulf Coast. Gura regularly interviews cabinet secretaries and chief executives, entrepreneurs and Nobel Prize winners.
Previously, he was a senior reporter for, and the principal back-up host of, "Marketplace," the public radio business and economics program. Based in Washington, Gura covered countless budget battles, showdowns and shutdowns, and the implementation of financial reform. But he spent a lot of time looking at how policy decisions play out beyond the Beltway. After the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, for instance, Gura spent several months reporting "Guns and Dollars," an investigative series about the U.S. firearms industry.
He began his career at NPR, first as an editor and a producer, then as a reporter for The Two-Way, the network's breaking news blog. Gura regularly contributed radio pieces to NPR's flagship news magazines, "All Things Considered," "Morning Edition," and "Weekend Edition." His writing — reviews and reportage — has appeared in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Columbia Journalism Review, and the Virginia Quarterly Review.
Gura's work has been recognized by the National Press Foundation, the National Constitution Center, and the French-American Foundation, and in 2014, he was awarded a Paul Miller Washington Reporting Fellowship. Gura is also a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
An alumnus of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, Gura received his bachelor's degree in history and American studies from Cornell University. He also studied political science in Bolivia, at the Universidad Mayor de San Andrés and the Universidad Católica Boliviana.
