Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. is an American media conglomerate and subsidiary of Time Warner, managing the collection of cable networks and properties initiated or acquired by Robert Edward "Ted" Turner starting during the 1970s. TBS, Inc. merged with Time Warner on October 10, 1996, and now operates as a semi-autonomous unit of Time Warner.
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. The Turner properties are headquartered in both the CNN Center in Downtown Atlanta and the Turner Broadcasting campus off Techwood Drive in Midtown Atlanta, which also houses Turner Studios. Across Interstate 75/85 from the Techwood campus is the original home of Turner's WTBS superstation, which today houses Adult Swim production company Williams Street.
Some of these international broadcasts, including language translations, were arranged with Turner Broadcasting System, which had broadcast My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and other Hasbro shows on many of their European and Middle Eastern channels.
