Founded and owned by media mogul Ted Turner, CNN (Cable News Network) was the world's first 24-hour cable news service. The Atlanta-based studio brings news to over 1,000,000,000 people around the globe every day.

Vistors can take a guided tour of the CNN Center to learn about the history of the CNN networks and their state-of-the-art studios. Highlights include a re-creation of CNN main control room where visitors can see the behind-the-scenes operations of a 24-hour news service. An exhibit area features interactive video clips of the top 100 news stories that CNN has covered since its inception. There are demonstrations that show how such special effects as making images appear behind anchors and correspondents are made. And there is a special presentation showcasing the other networks that make up the rest of the Turner broadcasting empire, including TBS, TNT, and the Cartoon Network.

Directions: The CNN Center is located at One CNN Center, just west of downtown Atlanta.
