On Thursday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed legendary land-owner and media tycoon Ted Turner for an exclusive and revealing sit down interview.
Having launched the first-ever 24-hour cable news channel in 1980, the founder of CNN shared the disappointment upon losing his job following the Time Warner merger:
"It really hurt, because we were making our budget and I was loyal to the management of the company," Turner revealed to Piers Morgan. "I didn’t do anything - didn’t do anything wrong and I think if it had been put to the employees, they would have voted to keep me. But they didn’t do that because I’d done a pretty good job."
Married and divorced three times, most recently with Jane Fonda, the 73-year-old presently has four girlfriends.
"Hopefully they won’t all leave me at once," he said.
"Most men watching this will be going, come on, Ted. How do you get away with that?" asked the host.
"With great difficulty," the guest admitted. "It’s complicated. It’s much easier to have one wife, but when you have one wife and she leaves you..."
Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as the philanthropist and mogul detailed the complexity of balancing his personal and professional calendars, and further explained his exit from CNN.
