So, did you know that CNN was founded in 1980 by Ted Turner?

The idea behind the station was to create a cable news channel devoted to providing 24-hour television news-related coverage, and it was the first of its kind in the United States.

Since its inception, CNN has expanded its reach to over nine hundred affiliate local stations and several regional and foreign-language networks around the globe.

One of the first news reports aired was with a husband-and-wife team that you may remember as Lois Hart and David Walker.

CNN has been at the forefront of every significant news-related event since its inception over 30 years ago, so what else makes it so important?

The Work of CNN

The continuous coverage of events and trails makes CNN the network to watch when you need to find the latest in updated information.

From the latest election coverage to trails of the decade, CNN stays on top of the competition.

Some programs aired on CNN will forever make their correspondence household names. One of the most famous would-be Larry King, host of the Larry King Live show.

The show aired from 1985 until 2010, making it CNN's longest-running program.

The show kept audiences due to the interviewee features, from White House interviews to prison cells to unique locations. 

There were very few locations where King would not go to get "the story."
