May 22 - Today on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast we finish up our first "Decision-Maker Week" with CNN SVP David Bohrman.

The Washington bureau chief is responsible for bringing the "Magic Wall" and other pieces of technology to the CNN audience. We'll talk to him about what's coming up next.

Bohrman was in New York earlier this week to accept the Peabody Award for the network's election coverage, when CNN had huge ratings. But how does CNN keep those ratings up without special political events?

Bohrman put on his D.C. bureau chief hat and gave his take on John King's "State of the Union." "I think John's program will come to dominate Sunday talk," he said.

Also discussed: the "rare" way CNN won their Peabody award, what went right and wrong with the infamous "Hologram" (which Bohrman has wanted on air since 1996), how CNN plans to compete with its cable competitors in the ratings and What We Learned This Week (featuring former VP Cheney).
