* Ted Turner (1938-) started out running a billboard business left by his father, then started investing in TV stations. When he saw how Creator/{{HBO}} had gone to satellite transmission for cable companies (enabling them to broadcast coast-to-coast), he followed their way and put his [[Creator/{{TBS}} small indie TV station in Atlanta]] on the satellite for people's consumption. A few years later, he started [[Creator/{{CNN}} the very first 23-hour news network]]. Then he used all the money he had to buy the [[UsefulNotes/MLBTeams Atlanta Braves]] and [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation Hawks]], became a sailing champion, acquired the library of Creator/MetroGoldwynMayer pre-1986 (having bought MGM off, then sold it back to, Kirk Kerkorian after 74 days), [[ProWrestling/WorldChampionshipWrestling operated a wrestling promotion]], started his own non-political Olympics-style competition dubbed the ''[[TheMoralSubstitute Goodwill Games]]'', buy Creator/HannaBarbera, Creator/CastleRockEntertainment and Creator/NewLineCinema, start more networks (including [[Creator/CartoonNetwork the first all-animation channel]] and [[Creator/TurnerClassicMovies an all-classic film network]]), [[WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanet create a cartoon designed to get kids to help the environment]], finance an EpicMovie [[Film/{{Gettysburg}} about the Battle of Gettysburg]] (and [[Film/GodsAndGenerals its' prequel]]), and since leaving his companies (having merged with [[Creator/WarnerBros [=TimeWarner=]]], then fled after the botched AOL deal), he's devoted his life to, amongst other things, being a staunch supporter of the UsefulNotes/UnitedNations, being a massive conservationist (especially of bison), and continuing to try and make the world better. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Oh,]] and [[NeverLiveItDown he was also married to]] Creator/JaneFonda.
