CNN’s Magic Wall Guru Heads to ABC News

CNN’s David Reisner has left the network for a new gig at ABC News. Reisner, CNN’s digital and 3D media producer (aka the wizard behind the New York version of the Magic Wall), joins ABC Wednesday as Interactive Media Producer.

Reisner’s last day at CNN, after 7 years with the network, was Friday.

Reisner brings his expertise with the Magic Wall to ABC. The network used Perceptive Pixel technology during the 2008 presidential election. Expect to see more of it on “Good Morning America” and across ABC News, an insider tells us.

You may recall, we covered the story of Reisner proposing to his fiancee, fellow CNNer Christine Pietz over the holidays — a proposal which was then seen on CNN.

CNN Senior Producer of New Media Josh Braun — who oversees all of CNN’s magic wall operations — remains at the network based in D.C.

The Admiral Works His Magic…Wall

With John King anchoring State of the Union from Los Angeles today, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff took it upon himself to use the Magic Wall to describe the situation for U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.

CNN producer Josh Braun trained Admiral Michael Mullen to use the wall and he not only switched the graphics but also telestrated the maps. CNN says it’s the first time someone of Admiral Mullen’s stature got interactive with the wall as part of a segment.
