Cable News Network
The Cable News Network (CNN) is a news cable television network based in the United States. It was launched on June 1, 1980 as a subsidiary of the Turner Broadcasting Systems Inc. by Atlanta-based entrepreneur Ted Turner. At the time of its establishment, it was the first twenty-four-hour rolling news television channel.
When the CNN was first launched in 1980, it had a million seven hundred thousand household subscribers. In 1985, a new channel CNN International was launched and it developed a substantial overseas presence. CNN played a significant role in the Gulf War in 1991. The CNN's global reach has multiplied seventy folds since the time of its launch. Today CNN programming is viewed worldwide and it has more viewers outside the United States than within.
