John C. Malone (born March 7, 1941) is a billionaire American businessman and philanthropist. He served as chief executive officer of cable and media giant, Tele-Communications Inc. (TCI), for twenty four years from 1973–1996. Malone is now chairman of Liberty Media, Liberty Global, and Liberty Interactive. As of 1 February 2011, Malone surpassed Ted Turner as the greatest individual private landowner in America, possessing 2,100,000 acres (8,500km2) of property, most of which is in Maine. His international property holdings comprise Humewood Castle in Ireland.
In 1963, Malone started his business career at Bell Telephone Laboratories of AT&T, working in economic planning and research and development. In 1968, he joined McKinsey & Company, as well as in 1970, became Group Vice President at General Instrument Corporation (GI). He was afterwards named President of Jerrold Electronics, a GI subsidiary company. For twenty four years, from 1973 to 1996, Malone served as President and CEO of Tele-Communications Inc. (TCI). His rise to Chairman at Liberty Global, Inc., was controversial at times. In 2005, John Malone held 32 percent of the shares in the media concern News Corporation, and although just about half the shares were voting shares, Rupert Murdoch apparently had concerns he might lose the charge of his business to Malone, and attempted to oust him from the business having a “poison pill” strategy. During the 1977-1978 term, Malone was the NCTA’s Treasurer. In May 2011, Malone started an attempt to get the bookstore chain Barnes & Noble, also remarkable for its eReader, the Nook.
