John C. Malone
Known for his financial wizardry, Malone acquired a barrage of cable systems throughout the United States, allowing TCI to own one in four cable systems in American households. TCI’s exposure to other parts of the media industry also broadened, as Malone acquired stakes in Turner Broadcasting and formed joint partnerships to build a combined cable telephone system in Britain. Under Malone’s leadership, TCI became the #2 cable television operation in the United States and grew into a media powerhouse that he eventually sold to AT&T.
