This Day in History

On June 1, 1980, the Cable News Network (CNN) was launched by media mogul Ted Turner, revolutionizing the television news landscape. As the first 24-hour cable news channel, CNN significantly impacted how news was delivered, offering real-time coverage of events around the world. Its live broadcast of major crises, including wars, disasters, and political events, changed the way the public received information, making global news accessible to a broader audience than ever before.
