In addition, he will be responsible for the company’s internal information technology infrastructure and support system.
“Bitcentral already enjoys a phenomenal record of ensuring smooth and seamless operations at stations converting to Bitcentral digital newsroom, archiving and distribution technologies in every part of the stations’ ecosystems,” said Fred Fourcher, president and CEO of Bitcentral. “Mr. Dulmage brings a unique and unmatched perspective in customer support challenges, coming from a world-leading broadcast company in Turner Broadcasting/CNN.

Dulmage began his career in production at CNN Headline News and then moved to CNN International.  Mr. Dulmage played a pivotal role in launching the global webpage.

“Bitcentral has been known as a leader in digital newsroom solutions, and coming from a similar leadership position at CNN, I plan to inject a unique perspective and understanding of the industry from within the world’s premier broadcast company,” added Dulmage. “Coming from a production background, I certainly understand the time constraints of a customer. I know what an on-air issue actually means to someone living in the production world. I bring that knowledge with me, as well as an executive perspective from my educational background in business.”
