CNN Doomsday Video
CNN Doomsday Video
Founder Ted Turner paved the way for the 24 hour news cycle. He was so confident CNN would last, he prepared his network for earths final days.
Rumors of the alleged video became folklore. It was supposedly created before CNN’s launch, and to be aired by the last living CNN employee before the worlds demise. It was just a rumor, until it wasn’t…
Rumors of end times video began in 1988 from the New Yorker, and the daily news in 2001.
The doomsday video remained a rumor until 2009 when an intern found it and recorded it. Michael Ballaban was that intern, and in a 2015 article for Gawkers Jalponik.com, revealed the video which was listed in CNN’s archives under the name TURNER DOOMSDAY VIDEO HRF (hold for release).
According to the jalopnik.com article: "Barring satellite problems, we won't be signing off until the world ends," Turner declared. And in anticipation, he prepared a final video segment for the apocalypse: “We'll be on, and we will cover the end of the world, live, and that will be our last event. We'll play the National Anthem only one time, on the first of June [the day CNN launched], and when the end of the world comes, we'll play 'Nearer My God To Thee' before we sign off.”
According to thewrap.com Ted Turner ominously explained: “Then, as things cranked up, I asked if they’d play “Nearer My God, to Thee” to put on videotape just in case the world ever came to an end. That would be the last thing CNN played…before we signed off. And, I’ll tell you, those guys in the military bands knew what I was up to.”
