Media Mogul Byron Allen Brewing Intents To Own CNN

by Duke Magazine

At the peak of his bickering racial discrimination settlement with Comcast, American media mogul, Byron Allen has his eyes keen on accruing a new business venture, which is owning the Cable Network News (CNN), which is the U.S. media giant.

The Entertainment Studios owner went on record earlier this month revealing his ultimate dream of owning one of the most viewed cable news networks in the U.S., according to Statista.

“I’d love to own CNN. But I have to buy AT&T to do that. And I will. Believe me, I think about it every day,” Allen told The Hollywood Reporter.

Allen has a master plan brewing that he predicts will be on par with the likes of News Corp. founder, Rupert Murdoch.

“I’m close to the same age when Rupert Murdoch came here to America,” he said. “He was in his 50s. I’m 59. What you see today will be 10,000 times bigger.”

Those who know Allen, like his longtime friend and chess rival, Eddie Murphy, vouch for his acumen, especially his ability to patiently wait for the opportunity to show face in securing epic business deals.

“He’s super patient. He takes a long time between every move,” said Murphy, comparing Allen’s chess and business tactics, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “He does it until you get frustrated — and then you do something stupid, and then all he needs is a little tiny crack. Just a pawn, any type of advantage, and he had you. That is Byron in a nutshell.”
