Turner President Leaves to Run NBA Team

Steve Koonin, the man behind TNT’s branding as a place for drama and TBS as a place for comedy, has exited as president of Turner Entertainment Networks to become CEO of the Atlanta Hawks.

This is the fourth high-level executive to exit Turner in the last six months, but it’s far too early to tell if the movement will mean any major changes for any of Turner’s properties.

More on the change from Broadcasting & Cable.
