Warner Communications, Inc. was established in 1972 when Kinney National Company spun off its non-entertainment assets due to a financial scandal over its parking operations[1] (as National Kinney Corporation), and changed its name. History[edit] It was the parent company for Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.
Pictures and Warner Music Group. It also owned DC Comics
DC Comics
and Mad magazine. Warner made (and later lost) considerable profits with Atari, Inc., which it owned from 1976 to 1984. In 1979, Warner formed a joint venture with credit card company American Express, Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment, which owned such cable channels as MTV, Nickelodeon, and The Movie Channel. Warner bought out American Express's half in 1984, and sold the venture a year later to Viacom, which renamed it MTV
MTV
Networks. In 1982, Warner purchased Popular Library

from CBS Publications.[2] In 1987, it was announced that Warner Communications
Warner Communications
and Time Inc. were to merge, although it took two years for the merger to take place. Before the merger closed in 1989, Warner purchased Lorimar-Telepictures. In early 1990, the combined companies were named Time Warner. The Warner Communications
Warner Communications
name was still credited on releases from Elektra Records

and its sister labels until 2004. The Warner Music Group continues to use the "Big W" logo, designed by Saul Bass

in 1972. Warner Communications

continues to exist as a holding company to Warner Bros.
