Following last month’s executive shakeup at Current TV in which CEO Mark Rosenthal abruptly resigned and was replaced by co-founder Joel Hyatt, the fledgling cable network has hired veteran news executive David Bohrman as president. Bohrman, who starts immediately, will be based in New York and San Francisco and will oversee programming, production, broadcast operations, digital and technology, working closely with co-founders Hyatt and Al Gore as well as Current’s Chief News Officer Keith Olbermann, the network says. “Current’s mission has always been to shine a light on important issues, to spark debate and to speak truth to power,” Gore said. “David Bohrman passionately shares our vision. He has innovation in his DNA, and he has the unique qualifications and relationships to take Current to a whole new level in programming and production.” For the past decade, Bohrman was CNN’s SVP Programming and Washington, DC bureau chief, and in May of this year, he became CNN’s SVP and Chief Innovation Officer Worldwide. Before that, he executive produced NBC News’ special news events from 1993-1997 and was part of MSNBC’s launch team, where he created The Site and Imus in the Morning. For 13 years before that Bohrman was at ABC News, where he was a senior producer and part of the launch team of Nightline and executive producer of World News Now.
