News at six and news at ten and every country has their own of this. So why do we really need global news but his role and i watched it. I mean over and over and over again.

And he thought there'd be more interest in these old movies if he colored demand and he did a taste test to prove it he did a screening of casablanca where i think they were showing black and white and color side by side and they could monitor which version people were looking at but just because they were looking at the color version does not necessarily mean the preferred it.

"Us to start. Vh1 ted turner wanna command and basically pe- and our parade. He said he was launched a music channel. It played. when none of the devil's music. let me say first of the cable. Musicale lasted one hundred one days on the air and you had the fold up and go home but we decided we can't let this happen and if there's going to be a second music channel we should have a second music channel and we made the case the cable we a second music channel. You don't want to add the ted turner channel. That's just going to go head to head against the one you already have add. Vh one which we call the very hot one at the time because it would be more compatible and it would play artists for another demo and we would sell a t you on a combo basis. Basically it was free if you already had. Mtv so we strangled him in terms of not being able to get distribution therefore no advertising revenue. No light on the end of the tunnel and he went out of business and we went forward of course watching. Vh one one thing. It was a savvy move a classic fighting brand. It was essential and fighting off ted turner champion but once that was over the team had to figure out what to do with the networks struggled for years ratings. Were busy so john sykes with left. Mtv by them was called back to lead the charge. I'm preston calls you up. Says come home. Need you to fix. Vh one what did you do as you know bob because you taught me so much of the staff of brand only valuable if there is an underserved segmenting audience that needs hip. Hip hop was starting to happen. Alternative music was exploding and a lot of the traditional rock bands and r&b bands were being pushed out. And they're going off the cliff. And i said there's a market here because they're having run a record company a publishing company. We are seeing these artists that used to be called middle of the road back. Then but now they were actually vibrant papillon's. It didn't have a place. And then i saw who are those powerful buyers young adults young college graduates. Here's a generation grown up on mtv. They have money. They're affluent and they have nowhere to go so i was excited about. Vh1 as i was about mtv mtv is iconic and it will be there forever but the other thing about vh1 to me also was it was my own and i knew if i fell. It would be on me. It would be like out at the h. One fails the vh point one rating for those people. Know ratings ratings are zero to whatever and point one zero hundred. Vh one is the ugly stepchild mtv networks to say it was nails out the back seat of a car to put flats in the tires of cars behind us. Because we didn't want anybody could be with mtv but it said now it quietly has thirty million homes. There's a markets and i looked in a room. Have the people or asleep. Bicycle that quinn staying. They had a job. They didn't believe in the product but they're getting a paycheck. So i said if you don't believe in this it's okay. We'll make a big thing and we're gonna fire you but we'll work out a package. You should leave because we need people who are going to believe in this. There's a market for this. I believe that this can be three hundred million dollar business in the next three years. If we all focus on that so people came to me and said. I don't want to do this. I was. I didn't think they would come and i don't think you're right like okay. Well thanks bye bye bye. L. came back three years later looking for jobs. But it was about believing in yourself believing your idea hiring people around you who are better than you at executing what they did and we put together a team at vh1 hoop under nbc nintendo bravo. We put together an all starved trip. So maybe proud and working with sumner. Redstone redstone nine. Hundred ninety four was on his game. You walked in insert. Here's my plan. Here's my want to do and he'd just say fine. Go do it if you don't do a fire you i'd say it's all i wanna know skew the rope and he did. It was a great nine years. We shattered all the records. They're all good businesses. You gotta reinvent them otherwise they faded off. Mtv was the starting point of a cable revolution. The channel and the creative engine we built gave birth to so much more. Here's tom talking about. Just that topic. I was ambitious. And i was highly motivated for this to succeed. I thought that we were in this tv revolution. We had a window back. It was all going to come. True was too good of idea fail. You know a lot of life is about timing and lock. I had somehow ended up once again in the right place at the right time and this was sort of my destiny. I was going to meet my opportunity. You did you know. I would say my time there. We really proved that was a business. Were the first cable network to make a profit but it was really you and your team including judy mcgrath. Who built mtv and the other networks into this incredible media giant. What drove that and did that vision. Come from and how did you get there. There's a compliment to you bob. I mean you're the guy always keep your eye on the consumer. Find out what the consumer we would always see this research. The consumer wanted what we were selling. We could tune it up a bit. And we also had this sort of slightly subversive underground feel and nothing really around like that and we would continue to launch new networks comedy central tv land and the whole international world of television began to deregulate in the late eighties. All these countries really only had state. Tv pretty much as you know. So the confidence. I had built from my years living in afghanistan and india was actually very transferable because i really knew we could go anywhere and do anything. If we could go to europe we could go to asia. We go to latin america. So we bill really the first worldwide television networking company and. We rolled out. Not just mtv but also nickelodeon and comedy central a lot of others right down through africa so the business gradually evolved from one where we would package other people's product like a music video to where we would increasingly own what we did but at the heart of it all was a creative machine. Which again was something that you put in at the inception of the companies we first started. Mtv it wasn't just entertainment. We built a channel to be the voice of young america and that included. Doing good. And my time there. Mtv made its mark with massive events with important missions and the international band aid farm aid. And of course live but it was rocked. The vote truly took the channel and the politics and some say even got a president elected. Here's judy talking about it. You've always done good rock. The vote juicer. Lose aids awareness. How did you think about that inside of a company. And how do you think for you as a as a person. Well you know inside. Mtv it was very interesting when we decided to get into an certainly rock. The vote was not our idea politician. Who those fair right. So jeff was very passionate about this and it sort of grew into rock the vote and i remember talking if tom frozen with whom i extraordinarily great creative relationship in this was one of the rare instances where we had a blowout. Really we really didn't agree. But i listened to what he said he said. This is a terrible idea. It's not gonna work. This is an entertainment brand. Nobody cares about this. We're gonna get laughed at him. We do not have permission to do this. There's nothing about us that says we should be stepping anywhere near an election or voting or any of the soil back. And i thought about it a little bit and i thought okay. This is where i come into the picture. I think i grew up in an era where one of the many things i loved about. music was. it's social commentary and it is about the time we live in. And it's about all the things that affect you in a very deep way..

"In 1980 Ted Turner launched the cable news network. It had a bumpy start. They had to even beat back a challenge from ABC. They won that battle and continue to grow their viewership. It wasn't until 1987. It's CNN would find the kind of news story that would change media forever. It was October 14th 1987, an 18 month old Jessica McClure was playing in her Midland, Texas backyard. The phone rang in the house, and her mother walked in to answer it. In that brief window of time tragedy struck. Apparently, there was a small eight inch diameter abandoned well in the backyard. Somehow Iraq that was covering the opening was moved and little Jessica fell down the well. CNN heard the developing story being covered by the local news and decided to send a camera crew. Initially, the team didn't think much of the story when we got the call and said we were going, I thought, well, you know. Girl in a while, she'll probably be out by the time we get there. We just didn't realize the significance of it. When they arrived, they set up in a neighbor's backyard. They borrowed a ladder from another neighbor and set up their camera to film the scene. As for young Jessica, she appears to be doing all right considering Cameras and microphones have been dropped down. Jessica can be heard to call to her mother. She has been singing humming and occasionally crime. The the rescuers learned that Jessica was wedged 22 ft down the well. Her legs were kind of in the splits with their right foot above her head. Because of the size of the hole, it became apparent that they weren't just going to be able to reach down and pull her out. CNN's camera crews that they'd have baby Jessica out of the well and maybe a few hours. I mean, this was oil country, people from this area knew how to drill holes. The rescuers are making progress literally by inches, and at that rate, it may be some time before young Jessica is brought to the surface, but two hours turned to four than 8 10 12. As CNN was filming the unfolding drama film crews from other networks began arriving. I got a little taller ladder so they can pick over the first guys and the later guys got even taller ladders, and it was like a grandstand tear. Before you know it. There were news organizations from every corner of the world covering that story. The entire world was captivated by the rescue. As 12 hours turned to 16 than 24. Americans wanted to watch every second of the dire situation, but the major networks were cutting away for their regular scheduled programming. The only place to see it was on CNN, so.

"On their part, and we were quite concerned about it. So Ted Turner went to work. He learned about their programming strategy. They were going to take several months and their first network they announced they were going to do to networks. We only had one CNN they were going to have a long term long form network that would compete directly with CNN. But they were going to start with a short form network called SNC that was going to Have an 18 minute news will and I figured it would be better to do a 30 minute news will anyway because people were used to turning from one station to the other at the top and bottom. Of the hour because that's when the network saw change their shows. So Ted decided he would launch another 24 hour news network. This one would be filled with shorter newscast to knock out the proposed channel. Before it got going. I decided we try and get on the air before they did. And we got on the air. And I think four months, 120 days with our second news network and preempted of a little bit, he called it. CNN to It would later be known as headline news, but also cost us Lot of money to do that. But we figured that we had to attack them first, have a preliminary job strike and make them unviable so that they dog Withdraw from the from the battle before they started their long term network, and it was all calculated and carefully thought out, and it worked Dob to a charm after just a year and a half. ABC sold their satellite news network to Ted Turner. CNN was all alone again. The fledgling 24 hour news network slowly grew its subscribers, eventually becoming profitable in 1986. They covered big events like the Challenger explosion. Looks like a couple of the solid rocket boosters, uh, blew away from the side of the shuttle in an explosion. You saw just a few moments ago about 45. Seconds after lift off a huge fireball in the sky. We have a report from the Flight Dynamics officer that the vehicle has exploded. It wasn't until 1987.

That's my Ted Turner story by the way before we continue on the phones, the this just in the Supreme Court. Unanimously affirmed a ruling today that provides for an incremental increase in how college athletes can be compensated and also open the door for future legal challenges that could deal a much more significant blow to the current. Business model. So that is so, basically, um Athletes are going to be able to be compensated for their likeness. That's I mean, I'm okay with that. I am as well. I am as well. Um, the court.

Entrepreneur Success Be Undaunted Kara Goldin - Know When to Move On
"I'm going to move ahead though here too on chapter five Which is entitled. Know when to move on and i want to give you a quote from page thirty three. You said money is never been a big motivator for me and still isn't what's the point of making money doing something you don't love. I stuck with it. But i knew i was not going to stay at cnn for long. I think this is. This is another one of those little -portant subtle things that gold and says that i think is really really important for people to wrap their minds around help them understand this that little nugget of goodness. Yeah well. I think that the most important thing is you. Go out and try things right and i was. I mean. it's interesting to think that at the time. Cnn was what would be termed today. A late stage starter. right ted. Turner was still running around the offices. I mean it was. It was just crazy. It was not you know the size that it was today and he was splitting his time between atlanta new york city. But what i realized was that i was i was coming in there. Initially because i thought the ted was this god-like figure and that it was an interesting brand and it was really really exciting. But i understood it pretty quickly that it was not what i wanted to do. I didn't wanna do the type of sales and business development that i was ending up working on and but that didn't mean while i was there that i wasn't going to do a great job and i think that that's something that i you know really really when eventually a when you look back on things and you connect the dots. I think that putting all that you've got into an organization and knowing that you have got a time line versus actually burning out on the job right and knowing that that's something that is That really you can take with you at all times that you knew it wasn't going to be the place. I not only learned a lot about sales and some of the other things that i was taught there but i also learned about culture. The culture at time for example was very. You know blood an ivy league versus what i was seeing from ted turner who you know very much the the organization was you know very much to him and which i think is so typical inside of companies to where you know his swearing his his suit and his cowboy boots. I had even growing up in arizona. Had never seen such thing. But things. But i think that it's just it really speaks to no experience along. The way is a waste of time right. That's another thing that i say to people. Sometimes people would say to me always should never have stayed at that job for so long instead of actually thinking about what you've done wrong figure out what the lessons you learned from matt and also understand. Maybe what you'll take with you. I mean we ended up doing a super bowl ad few years ago. That was super last minute. And i think that a lot of the things that i learned from being at cnn helped me to negotiate that deal. Right i didn't know it when i was sitting there that we would have. I would eventually be running a company and doing a super bowl ad. But i knew enough about trafficking and add through and waiting until the last minute and people thinking you know that it's going to be one price but it will discount really fast the closer and closer you get to the super bowl so all of these tactics team was saying. How do you know this stuff. I mean and i said you know. It's all part of my journey somewhere along the way so there's lots of lessons in that chapter as well. you know. this is this just in because this isn't in the book but you just triggered a thought in in me that you just said you know i think so often you know when we're on our journeys we don't we don't think about that where we're at is going to contribute to something in our future and the truth of the matter is if we could if we could appreciate where we are at even if you're not real happy with where you're at that you could see it as being something that is going to contribute to something even greater. Yeah right i mean it could make the it could make it. I mean because that's what you that's what you just did absolutely jobs always said. It's like the dots eventually connect right right but when you're in and you go through challenging time you don't y- i'll give you another example. That's not in the book when the pandemic hit the us which you know. I about as last march and It was you know it was a really challenging time. You were an essential product so

I don't want to spoil it. But this is about one baby. Here's the big question. It's been going on and on the final chapter. You're so vain. Sager and this came out like Probably about six or seven years ago, it finally was revealed that it was about they won't say it for a long, long, long time. Warren Beatty OK, you're so vain so and he also said that Richard Perry also writes about what a ladies man he was, and he was on the Warren Beatty Jack Nicholson level in the seventies of just Women would drop themselves at you at your feet. He did share and Diana Ross and then Jane Fonda and I remember when he was married to Jane Fonda, Um I feel like that was right after she was with Ted Turner, and then something happened to him that they split up. But this is this is gonna be published tomorrow. So we'll get some more gems from it. So another another tell all. Yeah, I'm kind of liking these. These tell all this one goes dividing people. Lot of people be interested in me. You need some hot hot topics and their balls. That was a big deal for a certain generation. And I'm going to say there were the boomers. I'm gonna I'm gonna call. We were talking about dinner from generations and that those bores I mean, you said some names I'm like, Oh, that's gonna attract a lot of people to that. It's fun. It's fun Having these people tell because they was wild in the seventies. It was such a different time. There were no cameras. The issue. There was no no one. You could do stuff. You could go out. You could be wild and be wild at a party in public, and no one would tell about it. You know what I mean? How badly do you want to say Okay, woman right now, Britney. I know I know, but I'm telling you in my college and twenties Lori and I have talked about this many time. We're so grateful that cameras didn't exist. I would not want my life documented. I was obsessed. I was AH, Hot Mass. You know how annoyed when I go to a show at first after something where everyone has their phones out, and they're recording it, and I think to myself That's the dumbest thing I've ever seen a present just be president. And I think about that all the time. Like we didn't have any of that takes. You can't whatever you can't. I mean, I'm lucky that the cameras were as bad as they were when I was a college where I can say that it wasn't me. That's not my digital Today was that next thing, you know, but I mean, that is something that I feel like It's such a violation. I know and that people have no idea what it was like before because they just know having it in their life. A certain generation the way you Test, If the you know is as somebody to fake, you know, it's like, Hey, will you like mime a phone call? If you tell somebody do that, you and I will do the thumb in the finger. But a little kid with you say, hey, will you pretend you're doing phone call will do as if they're on a iPhone. Oh, a nap, how to dial In some way we pretend to dial somebody who you know with your hand and I'll do this instead of the one ring a ding ding. Wondering in another seventies reference. I love you. I love the seventies, but I Oh, my gosh, But I really do think there is this freedom that we had that other generations don't get to experience That was just so part of me Sad because like when my kids were little I wish I would've had knife phone because I would have been so easy to documented and take the pictures. Instead of getting out. The camera never got taken out. But then I got to be in the mall I was and then I see all the moms going walking their kids and they're on their iPhone the whole time. With the stroll, and I think I was so president isn't I mean, we It was just such a different time. I agree. I and, you know, we talked about this a lot. You know the bad things about social media, the good things and all that stuff. We've talked about this. You about with, uh, the idea the the one aspect that I think we can say we like about it all is at least there's some control about the narrative coming out. Is that the own celebrity gets to put it out, right? Sure, fine. But I don't care that much about them to think that they need that. They're of rich and famous beyond their beliefs and have made done well. And who cares? I guess I'm being really No. I love it. I'm really being like, so much like the way you like. $20 million to do work for three months. Yeah, like Yeah, I'm with you. I actually think there's something that we lost when we gained a lot like that. When we gained all that technology, we we lost something. And I think I think a lot of that is I hope that we go There's a kind of a backlash where you find yourself, forcing yourself to put your phone in like a lockbox. I mean, Because there were not present like we used to be. That's for sure. I know I'm not. Do you feel like though, Do you feel like you your social media and take has gone down or up during prevent? It's gone down for The people I know I don't want. I don't care what people like No are safe, right? But I love finding constant information. I'm constantly one. I want the newest articles. I want the news updates. I want kick talks. I want this and I do, but I don't care. What my aunt Kathy says about she is listening. And we're sorry. And Kathy, I'm the same. I've kind of given up on Facebook. Um, but I'm always on Twitter. I don't tweet, but I like you. I like to use it as a consume. Yeah, you like to consume? I like to consume the media too. Yeah. And I do like looking at Instagram stuff. I like to see what's on 70 march. And 70 answer isn't entirely Kaplan and, yeah, I kind of do. I like to see what I can't believe how much they cook. I mean, I do like to see that kind of stuff, but I, but I guess I just there was this and it's cold. And it's something to do. Yeah, I mean, because right now, I just feel like you're thrown into doing something. Does Instagram make you feel better? Now? That's the wreckage Never had. It doesn't affect my feelings at all.

Reflections On Atlanta Braves Legend Henry "Hank" Aaron
"I could talk about the dignity in the class of hank. Aaron the man the you've been being for an hour easily but i'm a numbers guy and so let me tell you what i did. After hank aaron died i navigated over to his page on baseball reference. And i don't know. I just be held the majesty of this man's career and it literally gave me goosebumps. The more i looked the more. I realized he was beyond great. He was at some other level. He wound up with nearly thirty eight hundred hits. And that's a lot of freaking hits. It's a thousand more history chipper jones. It's two thousand more hits than mark. Maguire it's more hits than johnny bench and hank greenberg got combined and they're both in the hall of fame so i think about all those hints and i think about those seven hundred fifty five homeless because that's two hundred more homes than mickey mantle. Two hundred it's more homers than edgar martinez and duke snider hit combined. And they're both in the hall. But the more i dug i found other cool stuff to hank. Aaron had double digit home run seasons at age twenty and age. Forty here the only three players who did that. Willie mays ted williams hank aaron. That's a pretty good. Start on a mount rushmore. Would you say and all those home runs. He hit for all those years. This never struck out one hundred times. Then there's total basis crushes. Everyone who ever played in total bases six thousand eight hundred and fifty. Six total bases isn't just a record. It's seven hundred. Twenty two more than stan. Musial was the next closest player in history. If stan musial had hit another one hundred and eighty home runs. He still wouldn't catch i karen and total basis. That's a lot of total basis. That's incredible hitter hank. Aaron was for two decades. So is it possible to be one of the greatest players who ever lived and still the underrated. After looking over hank aaron's numbers. I think it is my name. Is david o'brien cover the braves for the athletic. And there's only two guys that i've ever felt this aura around them and that was mohammed ali and hank. Aaron and hank aaron. How's interviewed him. The first time at spring training. I remember approaching him and it was just You know i've done this for thirty years. And it was feeling. I've had unlike any other athlete that i've ever approached but then he immediately just he smiled and was so warm that that fear or intimidation just as melted away. And you could not believe that you were talking to this. Superstar is genuine icon living in atlanta for twenty years You can't overstate the importance of hank. Air to this city and this region the south. I grew up in the south and hank aaron being a black man being the greatest one of one of the two or three greatest players of all time and to do what he did in the south and then living in atlanta and seeing hank aaron you know mementos anchor and tributes and see his name on buildings and streets and that kind of thing. I would argue that. There is no athlete. That is more important to a city than hanker and wants to atlanta. He was such a huge part of how the culture of the south has changed. I mean this is a city where you feel fide of being so much black acceptance here. Thanks a huge huge part of that. He helped pave the way for all these other black athletes and entertainers wanna come here to be here. Brian jordan know it was an all star with atlanta. Bryant said that The reason that he chose atlanta was hank. Aaron and was a boy idle here. He said a black kid growing up playing baseball hank. Aaron was the guy but it was an opportunity for me to meet my hair. The hope the opportunity is given so many kids today. Amazing dominique wilkins. Said hank was a big reason. That he came here was one of the first people. It's probably one of the most instrumental guys into getting me here in atlanta. But one for god like hank. I wouldn't been here. Was hanker went to ted turner and said hey you need to get this kid by any means necessary. He said people should give the roses while they're alive and that he's glad to see him getting them now but he said hank should have been put on a pedestal decades ago and he was right What are the things that i remember him saying is that you gotta set example for people to come at you. And how do you do that. You do the right way you doing about being Have miltie you do it by just doing the right thing and the right thing a lot of times. It's hard and a lot of guys. Young guys don't know how to do the right thing. As far as how they present themselves to people and how they get back to people so to give back experts that i've learned over the years has become from erin trampling. We don't see that much of that anymore today. And he lived in the same house that he bought when he came here in. Nineteen sixty six from the

Larry King died on Saturday at the age of 87. What an interesting, interesting man. Probably known as the consummate interviewer of the last 25 30 years. His roll index was unbelievable. The people that he got did get all the way from presidents to major stars. I think a lot of it has to do not only was he a good interviewer, I'm a fan of his interview his prowess, but they were all softball interviews. I don't want to come down on Larry King. I want to talk about his life and his legacy. But, uh, everybody we've been taught about how many people could get Well, yeah. When you know that you're a star, or you're a political figure. You got to get the easy questions. But let's say that that let's set that aside for a moment, uh, I want to talk about him. And what a fascinating guy. Uh, he was born. Uh, here. United States. His parents were immigrants, Jewish immigrants, and they, like many other Jewish immigrants came over came over with nothing. And started a small delicatessen business and he grew up. It wasn't a very wealthy neighborhood that he he grew up in, but from very early days he wanted to be on radio. And I could just imagine what his parents said. Nice Jewish family. What radio? What are you nuts? Become a doctor, a lawyer. It's probably not the accent they had, by the way, I think they were more of an East European. But here he was just totally enamored of radio. So what he did. Is. He comes from New York and hey, want to be a radio, and he got a job at his tiny little radio station in Florida. Miami. And his job was sweeping the place up effectively. He was the janitor. And then a DJ. One of the DJs doesn't show up. Literally quit. I'm not coming in. And now you have this to the station manager only. Ah, you over. There's like 42nd Street, the musical you over there, You want to be on the air, and that's how he got started. Everybody has a different story. When you think about how people break into television or radio And So, uh, being Larry King. He was very good at what he does. Hey, kept on just moving up. And he had he had the first set nationally syndicated call in show. I don't know if you knew that he was up to 300 stations. At one point, hugely successful and then in the eighties, there was a guy who owned a brand new network. Ted Turner had this fledging little network called CNN 24 Hour news. And it was, uh, this was new stuff. No one had ever heard of a 24 hour news station, and it lost it shirt by the way for a very long time. And it was Ted Turner, who kept on saying This is the wave of the future and I was a visionary really was And in early days he hired Larry King. To be to have the interview show much like he did on the syndicated radio show and for a period of time, Larry King had the number one show on CNN. And had a listenership of what 15 18 people Early in those days, Cable news didn't do very well. It lost money you could. You could pay $10 for a commercial. But as CNN took off, and as people got used to 24 hour news, can you imagine not having 24 hour news today? You've got what MSNBC. You have Fox. You have CNN Blanche of other ones. Newsmax. I think Spectrum has one. Spectrum TV has a local show with 24 hours, maybe even national show. And so it's just part and parcel of who we are in those days. It wasn't so hey, kept on moving up on his beginning salary at CNN. Was $100,000 a year, which actually is pretty good when the Larry King show went on CNN's has started Uh and he ended up with about $7 million a year, which is pretty good in the world of cable news. And what he was known for eyes all as I said that going back to the beginning of the segment, all of the interviews he was getting, for example, Frank Sinatra his last interview, it was impossible to get Frank Sinatra They were friends, Marlon Brando. It was completely impossible to get Marlon Brando sitting in for an interview they never met. They hit it off so well during the course of the show is the 2 90 minute interview that Marlon Brando ends up kissing Larry King Live on the air, kisses him on the mouth. Now we're not talking about swabbing tonsils. We're not talking about one of those kinds of kisses. But one of those European kind of parent child kind of thing. And then there were all kinds of floods and the other thing that he did, and this one. He's actually being given credit for this and that is he would never read a book. When he was interviewing the author. He would never prepare. For an interview..
Weekend Edition Saturday
'The King of Talk': Remembering Larry King
"Larry King has died. He was 87 in a career that spanned 60 years. Larry King interviewed just about everybody. Reporter Jeff Lunden has this appreciation. With his trademark suspenders and his deep baritone voice tinged with a Brooklyn accent. Larry King spoke with Presidents George Bush is our honored guest for the full hour. Next on Larry King Live World leaders Moammar Qaddafi. The leader of the nation of Libya, celebrities, the brilliant Barbra Streisand, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes and on and on and on. I'm always engrossed in the guest. Larry King spoke with Jesse Thorn on the turnaround podcast in 2017. I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, So I guess I'm better every day at learning. The Brooklyn born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity when we would go to dodge it. All my friends wanted autographs at the injury. I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players is they're going to their cars asking questions. Why'd you bunt? Why they do this in the third inning. My curiosity is still insatiable. King began his career is a DJ in Miami, and it's where he got his name is well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger was too ethnic. He chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper. By the late 19 seventies, King had an overnight talk show on national radio. Then the 1985 Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author. Bill Carter, who's a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect. Picking up something like Larry King may love sense because he had Establish himself kind of as a guy who could get big guests. They could have big names and promoted and became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup, and King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lob softball questions. It is guests. His strategy was I'm never gonna make the guests uncomfortable. And that means not only will they come back, but they'll tell their friends. He won't ask you about that ugly divorce of yours. You know, he'll ask you about your favorite movie, so he didn't challenge people, But he did get information. He was pretty good at that, like when he talked with ex President Richard Nixon. Well, I don't want to dwell in the Watergate thing that's been covered so well. But some personal things when you drive by Those collections of buildings. The hotel the two apartment houses the office building, You feel weird, funny. No, I never give it a thought. Never given a thought. Never given a thought. That's one place where you just don't look back. As far as Watergate is. I know you don't look up at the buildings themselves. Not at all. Not a matter of fact, I've never been in the Watergate. Larry King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews, the less I know. Better Now, That sounds strange to people. Like If you wrote a book. I wouldn't read the book for interview do because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book, but King knew the national zeitgeist. He covered the first O. J. Simpson trial every night, says Bill Carter. He basically started the cable monomania move. We're going to just cover this story. That's it In a way. It was perfect for life because it was celebrity oriented. It was in the news, but it was not political. Ultimately, CNN canceled King show because it wasn't political competition from Fox and MSNBC took its toll on the ratings. But King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had Quinn couple bypass surgery after a massive heart attack, and King took his talk show to streaming video and kept on working for NPR news.

"Okay, maybe that'll work, so it wasn't some grand vision, and I find it amusing that people think it is. First of all, Ted Turner was extremely conservative. At that point he was not involved with Jane Fonda had nothing to do with Jane Fonda. He was married to another woman named Jane. It's so he he was just interested in deploying technology, which, like I say, it's kind of not sexy or wonky. I mean, it is very wonky, but that's really how it happened. It was only after CNN went on the air that he recognized the force that it put into his hands and that there was much more that could be done with it. It's interesting. I feel like that's a thread that goes through his life because he owned before CNN. He owned the Atlanta Braves, the baseball team, But I think the way you describe it correct me if I'm wrong here, But I think the way you describe it is that You didn't care about baseball like, did he? No, no, no Going into it. He wasn't interested in that either, but like an opportunist, much more than like a person with conviction who follows the conviction. Although his conviction really woz business, his art was business. And so it wouldn't be fair to say that he was. You know, there are opportunists in this world and he sees the moment before him and that happened in the case of the base. All air rights that he bought to air on channel 17. It showed him the power of baseball. And once he was in, he was all in even though through his our heart was as a yachtsman. He got into the groove of baseball and got into the business of baseball the same way he did with the business of news. You're this quote that I love from Turner. He says that when his station gets up on satellite, and there's the quote ABC will shrink down to a puddle like the witch in The Wizard of Oz. You know, we're going through this moment in time today, where there's a reckoning in the use of media, particularly in the use of social media. And you know this is why I love studying history as a career journalist. I love now at this stage of my life, looking back and seeing That in the seventies even before that people were focused on the delicate areas, effects of television. The impact what of this of this television people sitting in front of it? For years, they've gotten their news from print. Then they got the news from radio. Each medium comes along you service, the other, supplants it in the mind share of the people and becomes the dominant way of delivering information. And this moment in time that I write about in this book is about that moment in time where people were angry about TV for years, the FCC chairman himself called television a vast wasteland. Along comes Ted Turner. As all these technological forces air coming into being, and he seizes the moment and runs with it. And here we are today. An excellent place to break. I'm talking with Lisa Napoli. She's the author of Up All Night, Ted Turner's CNN and the Birth of 24 Hour News. We're looking at the moment when Tech changed news. Then it changed us. You congrats. This whole segment and also this whole show actually, which is all about the power of time to reinvent our lives were on.
