CNN founder Ted Turner gets his own street and day

CNN founder Ted Turner has been given his own street and his own day (July 21st). According to the Associated Press, city leaders approved awarding Turner with a 1.5 mile stretch of Spring Street, renaming it Ted Turner Drive.

Officials say the move was meant to honor Turner’s cultural and economic contributions to Atlanta. Officials say several of Turner’s notable contributions to the city — including the CNN Center, Turner Broadcast System and Ted’s Montana Grill — are near the portion of the street being named after him.
