David Bohrman, CNN’s DC Bureau Chief and head of special events has been named senior vice president and chief innovation officer for CNN Worldwide. For the past nine years, Bohrman has served as the network’s executive producer of election coverage, and considered largely responsible for the CNN/YouTube debates, the “magic wall,” and anchoring from the convention floors.
In a memo announcing the new assignment, CNN President Jim Walton said of Bohrman: “We are giving his passion for what is new and next in emerging technology a bigger canvas. He will continue to contribute to the creation of formats and editorial approaches, but now across CNN’s multiple platforms.”
In the meantime, Managing Editor of CNN Worldwide Mark Whitaker is on the hunt for a new DC Bureau Chief as Bohrman begins his new gig on May 1st.
