Cable News Network (CNN) was launched in 1980, 34 years ago as an American basic cable & Satellite television.
The CNN news channel is currently owned by WarnerMedia under the umbrella of AT&T. It was set up by media mogul Ted Turner, and its first broadcast was on the 1st of June 1980.
CNN was the first all-news cable television channel, and it has since grown into one of the most popular channels, serving well over 100 million households.
CNN has also developed a successful strategy of appearing on nearly every television placed in a hotel. This channel is broadcast on 890,000 American hotel rooms alone, and that figure is much more significant when extrapolated to the rest of the world.
Much like the other leading news stations CNN primarily broadcasts from New York City, although it does have studios in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, and Atlanta.
As previously mentioned, CNN was the first cable channel to focus solely on the news. Even today, the bulk of the programming schedule is focusing on delivering news bulletins throughout the day and night.
It does intersperse those bulletins with special focus programs such as Inside Politics with John King. On weekends, programming does change quite significantly to focus more on factual and documentary-style programs.
To date, CNN has produced over 35 original documentaries/mini-series, some of which have received great critical acclaim. The most successful of these documentaries was American Dynasties: The Kennedys, which managed to draw in an audience of 1.7 million viewers.

CNN Live Stream
Live streams of CNN are now available on a number of subscription-based internet TV platforms. It’s one of the reasons behind their world-leading reach of 212 countries and territories.

Their reach doesn’t stop there though, with CNN available on Sirius, XM, and Sirius XM satellite radio stations.
CNN News Channel Coverage
CNN has gained notoriety for its coverage of many key events during its 40-year existence.
More recently, CNN had the most watched year in the history of their network thanks to the 2016 US Presidential Election. This success was in part, due to showing large portions of un-edited Trump rallies.
It is expected that viewership figures will exceed those number during the 2020 US Presidential campaign.
