Turner Broadcasting legend dies

The founding father of Turner Broadcasting Engineering has passed away.

Eugene Wright, 70, of Peachtree City, GA, died May 22.

Wright was responsible for making Ted Turner's broadcasting vision a reality. He oversaw CNN, CNN Headline News and CNN Radio's move from their midtown location to the current location in CNN Center in downtown Atlanta.

After 25 years in the business, Wright retired in 1997. He is survived by his wife of 24 years, two children, a daughter-in-law and two grandchildren.
