▪ American company
 subsidiary company of Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., engaged in 24-hour live news broadcasts. Headquarters are in Atlanta.

      Cable News Network was launched on June 1, 1980, by Ted Turner (Turner, Ted), founder of the Turner Broadcasting System. He established news bureaus in major American cities and in other cities throughout the world. The resulting continuous live news coverage, transmitted via satellite around the globe, had the advantage of immediacy. CNN gained worldwide attention in 1991 for its around-the-clock coverage, much of it broadcast from Iraq, of the Persian Gulf War. In 1995 the CNN.com Web site debuted, and it consistently ranked as one of the most popular news sites on the Internet. The following year, CNN, along with the rest of the Turner Broadcasting System, was absorbed by entertainment conglomerate Time Warner Inc. The company also operates the news channels Headline News, CNN International, CNN en Español, and CNN Airport Network.
