CNN Turns 32

32 years ago today, cable history was made when CNN flickered to life. What started as a crazy idea in the mind of Ted Turner became a reality on June 1st, 1980 with David Walker and Lois Hart anchoring. The first story? President Jimmy Carter visiting civil rights leader Vernon Jordan in the hospital:

Earlier this year Turner appeared on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” and Morgan asked Turner what he wanted to achieve with CNN:

“I wanted to better inform the world,” Turner said.

“Do you feel that you succeeded?” Morgan replied.

“Yes,” Turner responded.
