ATLANTA (AP) - Media mogul Ted Turner is endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.
In an email Monday, Turner lauded Clinton's leadership skills and says the former secretary of state is the most qualified to become the 45th president. Clinton, a democrat, is in a race for president against republican nominee Donald Trump.
Turner says he admires Clinton for her effort to improve health care, education, immigration reform and crusade for equal rights.
The television pioneer says he places Clinton at the top of the list as one of the "smartest and powerful people" in the world.
Turner is the founder of CNN. He also founded the Cable News Network, the first 24-hour, all news TV network.
Turner sold his Turner Broadcasting to Time Warner Inc. in 1996.
