Through the development of a proprietary computer system, Bloomberg built one of the most successful financial news, information and analysis services in the country. Competing against stalwarts like Dow Jones and Reuters, Bloomberg effectively infiltrated Wall Street with low cost terminals and expansive financial coverage. He parlayed his initial success on Wall Street into a full-service financial news media empire including radio stations, television programs, and Internet coverage before becoming the Mayor of New York City.
