Last Of Original Directors Signing off at Turner Broadcasting

Tom Gaut, one of the last Original Directors at Turner Broadcasting is working his last day Today.

When CNN signed on the air on June 1, 1980 at 6PM, just two hours later Gaut was in the Director's chair calling the 3rd hour on that first day. Today he does his last show. 

"It will be a sad day for me.  I'm leaving Turner Broadcasting, after 34 1/2 years," Gaut tells FTVLive. 

For the last 7 1/2 years, Gaut has been directing Morning Express with Robin Meade. Which means two of the nicest people in TV news were working side by side.   

"She is a very special person, I will miss my mornings with Robin", Gaut says.

And we are sure she will miss you as well Tom.

Good Luck!
