Network mogul and "entrepreneurial acumen" Ted Turner, would find a multitude of success throughout his career; even though he hadn't completed college. His father, Robert Edward Turner Jr. owned the successful Turner Advertising company, which found its success via billboard ad sales. After a brief stint at a boarding school in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Ted would be encouraged to enroll in Harvard, by his father. Though Ted's grades weren't of the required levels for Harvard, he would in turn enroll in Brown University; though he'd be kicked out for having a woman in his dorm. It wasn't until 1960 that Ted was made the manager of Turner Advertising's Georgia branch - and in 1963, after a costly buyout of a competitor about bankrupt the company, Ed Turner would take his own life; leaving Ted as president of what is now called Turner Communications. Currently, as of the 2016, Ted Turner is worth a modest $2.2 Billion.
