Ted Turner Given DPAA Visionary Award

Gail Chiasson, North American Editor

In awarding Ted Turner (in absentia) the first Digital Place-based Advertising Association Visionary Award, Mike DiFranza, head of Captivate Network (shown immediately below) quoted Turner’s message:

Early to bed,
Early to rise,
Work like hell
And advertise.

Not many people know that Turner’s media empire began with his father’s billboard business, which he took over at age 24.
