Recent Vandalism[edit]

  • I have to apologize to the Wikipedia community. A coworker thought it would be funny to change this article. It was "reported" to me shortly after the change was made, which I fixed. I then noticed said changes came from the same IP address (corporate proxy server). GregorBraun (talk) 15:39, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Team Coco[edit]

Technically and legally speaking Team Coco is not a brand owned by Turner it is actually owned by Conan O'Brien and his production company Conaco. O'Brien owns his show Conan much like Johnny Carson owned his version of the Tonight Show and David Letterman who owns The Late Show, whereas Jay Leno's production company Big Dog Productions co-produces the Tonight Show but does not own it, NBC made sure of this when they regained full ownership of the Tonight Show brand following Carson's departure. If there is no objections I'd like to delete Team Coco. TheGoofyGolfer (talk) 00:39, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Multiple errors fixed in Infobox[edit]

Today, I discovered that the Infobox contained multiple errors. Some companies were incorrectly listed as divisions when they are actually subsidiaries; some were under different companies under Turner Broadcasting System. I removed some companies completely from the Infobox while the remainder were moved to the correct places.

I apologize for any inconvenience caused at Talk:Time Warner as I accidentally posted there. I was rushing and confused this page with the above talk page.

If anybody has any comments please mention me specifically so I get notified. -Jesant13 (talk) 22:52, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Contested deletion[edit]

This page should not be speedily deleted because... (your reason here) --CR85747 (talk) 05:45, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

The "Turner Broadcasting System" name still is used in corporate communications from the company. The bottom of the front page of Turner.com says "©, ® and ™ 2015. Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.", Time Warner's most recent 10-Q statement states that "The Turner segment consists of businesses managed by Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (“Turner”)."

Requested move 15 February 2016[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: No consensus to move. Common name is an argument, but WP:NATURAL is a counterargument, and the (company) moniker could indeed be confused with other companies. (non-admin closure)  — Amakuru (talk) 22:01, 16 March 2016 (UTC)



Turner Broadcasting SystemTurner (company) – the broadcasting system was dropped years ago. (Procedural request, I'm just fixing a misplaced request that was made by an IP within the article text itself.) -- Ed (Edgar181) 15:24, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Oppose for now due to the ambiguity of the proposed title and per WP:NATURAL. The company is Turner Broadcasting System and the brand is Turner. The proposed title is not naturally disambiguated and could be confused with other companies also called simply "Turner" such as Turner Construction. However, I am open to further evidence or arguments. —  AjaxSmack  03:31, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
