Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (often abbreviated TBS Networks, TBS, Inc. or simply Turner) is the Time Warner subsidiary managing the collection of cable networks and properties initiated or acquired by Robert Edward "Ted" Turner starting during the 1970s. The company has its headquarters in the CNN Center in Atlanta. TBS, Inc. merged with Time Warner on October 10, 1996, and now operates as a semi-autonomous unit of Time Warner. This is Time Warner's second experience with advertiser-supported cable broadcasting, after co-owning the Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment Company through Warner Communications before selling it to MTV Networks during 1987.

The company's current assets include CNN, HLN, TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Boomerang, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies.

The current chairman and CEO of Turner Broadcasting is Philip I. Kent.

Famous quotes containing the words system, turner and/or broadcasting:

    A religion so cheerless, a philosophy so sorrowful, could never have succeeded with the masses of mankind if presented only as a system of metaphysics. Buddhism owed its success to its catholic spirit and its beautiful morality.
    W. Winwood Reade (1838–1875)

    We inherit plots.... There are only two or three in the world, five or six at most. We ride them like treadmills.
    —Janette Turner Hospital (b. 1942)

    We spend all day broadcasting on the radio and TV telling people back home what’s happening here. And we learn what’s happening here by spending all day monitoring the radio and TV broadcasts from back home.
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)
