About Us

From that first December day in 1976, Turner has been leading the transformation of the very business we helped create with huge, bold ideas. It’s that adventurous maverick spirit that encompasses everything we do. What started simply as the “Superstation” laid the blueprint for today’s basic cable television explosion and evolved to create the first 24-hour news cable channel, CNN. Now, Turner does it all - we create great drama, honor the classics, cheer on the home team, and provide quality kid-friendly entertainment.

Turner owns and operates some of the most valuable brands in the world, including Adult SwimBleacher ReportBoomerangCartoon NetworkCNNELEAGUEFilmStruckGreat Big StoryHLNiStreamPlanetSuper DeluxeTBSTurner Classic Movies (TCM)TNTtruTV and Turner Sports

In the end, it all boils down to this: we love our fans. Serving their needs on TV and beyond, we believe in building fandoms that enable a real, honest sense of belonging. It’s what we have always been about.
