Thank you so much for your report on Ted Turner. The legacy he has created for Atlanta had benefited so many people — so many countries.
Didn’t know (until this article) that AT&T had taken Turner’s name off Turner Broadcasting System (TBS). He has such an incredible legacy. I came to Atlanta in 1970 when he had started Channel 17 … with Braves Baseball (America’s Team) that went into Satellite distribution. His background (from his father) had been in Billboards and advertising .. which he ramped up big time.
And who can forget “Captain Outrageous” — and his sailing in and winning the 1977 America’s Cup.
And CNN — and CNN Center
And then the sale of CNN to AOL.
Turner is one of those visionaries. And even created a great restaurant – Ted’s Montana Steak House … with bison on the menu.
