Mark Berniker Named EP of Current TV’s ‘War Room’

Jennifer Granholm

Now we know where former Bloomberg TV producer Mark Berniker went after leaving the cable channel recently. Berniker is joining Current TV to become executive producer of the upcoming 9 PM program “The War Room with Jennifer Granholm.” At Bloomberg, Berniker helped launch a number of programs, including “Surveillance Midday” and “Bloomberg West.”

“’The War Room’ will give viewers an inside look at the political process and cut through the campaign talking points to offer up solutions to some of the issues facing the nation today,” said David Bohrman, President, Current TV in a statement.  “Mark is a seasoned television executive who will partner with Governor Granholm to deliver on Current’s promise to reinvent the cable news landscape by speaking truth to power and forging a direct relationship with viewers.”

Bloomberg TV’s Michele Steele Joining ESPN

ESPN continues its recent trend of acquiring business-savvy reporters with its latest hire. TVNewser has learned that Bloomberg TV’s sports business reporter Michele Steele is joining the Worldwide Leader as on-air talent.

Steele is the second business network talent to depart for Bristol in recent weeks: ESPN hired Fox Business Network anchor Chris Cotter last month. The channel also recently hired a sports business reporter of its own in Kristi Dosh, who founded the Business of College Sports blog.

Bloomberg TV meanwhile has seen a small exodus of talent. In the last few weeks producer Mark Berniker left the channel while managing editor Dan Colarusso jumped to Reuters. That said, Bloomberg has also been adding staffers to its ranks, including Courtney Chapman and Wendy Brundige from ABC, Stephanie Ruhle from Deutsche Bank and Justin Dial from CNN.
