Businessman. As a media magnate he controlled important properties in the newspaper, television, and magazine industries. Perhaps most significantly, he was responsible for the creation of "TV Guide", the largest circulation weekly magazine in the world, a magazine central to understanding television in America. He was also very active in the arena of American politics, and served as United States Ambassador to the Court of St. James. In his later life, Annenberg became renowned for his substantial philanthropic activities, which included significant donations to educational institutions and public television. (bio by: Reginald Reginald)
