New York – Ted Turner, legendary media visionary, was honoured by the Digital Place-based Advertising Association (DPAA) at its 5th annual Digital Media Summit at the New York Hilton.
Turner was honoured for his pioneering role in helping to launch the digital place-based media industry. Under his aegis, Turner Private Networks in the early 1990’s was at the forefront of the launch of eight digital place-based networks: Checkout Channel, CNN Airport Network, CNN Accent Health, CNN College Television Network (now MTVU), Cafe USA, McDTV (with McDonald’s), Turner In-Flight and AutoZone Sports Network.
In accepting the honour, Turner said, “When I got into the industry decades ago, I knew I was taking a risk and certainly I didn’t know I’d achieve the success we did let alone be known as a visionary. I can’t believe how far the industry has come since those early days but I’m proud to have been a part of its beginning.”
