Tom Johnson

Tom Johnson joined CNN as president on August 1, 1990 -- one day before Iraq invaded Kuwait. The Georgia native was then thrust into one of the biggest stories of the decade.

In 1998, during Johnson's tenure as chairman, president and chief executive officer of the CNN News Group, a Wall Street Journal/NBC national poll named CNN the "most trusted" news organization.

In 1999, Johnson received the Paul White Award from the Radio-Television News Directors Association (RTNDA), its highest honor.
