In 1980, Ted Turner and an oddball cast of visionaries, big-league discards, and risk-takers turned the basement of an abandoned country club in Atlanta into the future of news. Where TV news once meant dignified nightly broadcasts on three national networks, thanks to CNN, now it would be on 24 hours a day, \”until the world ends,\” as Turner quipped. Lisa Napoli’s Up All Night takes readers inside the founding of the upstart network that set out to change the world. At the time, Ted Turner’s gambit was derided as folly. But he wasn’t the kind of person who listened to doubters. This is a rollicking story, an essential chapter in media and business history that paved the way for the world we live in today. Book jacket.
