Terry Baker, executive vice president, executive producer at Fox Business Network, has joined Current TV as its executive vice president of production.

He is being brought in to help Current TV president David Bohrman's "reinvention" of the channel into a news analysis and political commentary network.

Baker's resume also includes stints at CNBC, CNN, ABC News, and WNBC-TV New York.

The appointment follows the announcement Wednesday that Jason Odell had been tapped as executive vice presisdent of technology for the channel. He had been a consultant to CNN and before that, vice president of broadcast engineering at Universal Music Group.

Bohrman has not put a timetable on the revamp, but said last month that "you will see a vastly different prime several months down the road than you do now."
