Leadership: John Stankey, CEO-WarnerMedia

2017 Revenues: $31 Billion

We aim to deliver the world’s best stories and most engaging content from talented storytellers and journalists to audiences around the globe.

With the recent merger of AT&T and Time Warner, we’re now bringing a fresh approach to how the media and entertainment industry works for consumers, content creators, distributors and advertisers. We’ll bridge the gap between premium content and connectivity to that content. And together, we’ll drive even more choice, value and innovation to consumers – and deliver the best entertainment experiences in the world. For example:

  • We’ll draw on our world-class library of top movies and TV shows, along with digital content, to experiment with shorter forms of content built for mobile viewing.
  • We’ll work to integrate video with social media applications on devices

HBO, Turner and Warner Bros. are world leaders in creating premium content. They operate one of the world’s largest TV and film studios and own a deep library of entertainment. They also manage popular digital sites such as Bleacher Report and some of our growing family of streaming services including HBO NOW, Boomerang and FilmStruck. And, we offer a strong portfolio of advertising solutions.
