When he was 15 years old Mike Lazzo ran away from home, moved to Atlanta and was working in a movie theater making good money, but was bored to tears. The job he found himself in was working in a mailroom. Taking a massive pay cut from his prior job, Mike started at Turner Broadcasting when it only had two broadcasting stations: CNN and TBS. He is now the Vice President of Programming at Cartoon Network.
