MSG, NY - History and corporate ownership - Netflix
From its inception in 1927, the Graham-Paige Motors Corporation was a big player in the automobile business but, by 1945, the impact of the Depression and World War II left the company all but out of the car business. In 1947, the Graham Paige decided to sell all of its automotive assets, change the corporate name to Graham Paige Corporation and to start investing in real estate. In 1959, one of those investments was to buy a 40% interest in the Madison Square Garden III. By 1962, Graham Paige had a controlling interest in the Madison Square Garden Corporation and decided to merge the assets of the two corporations into a new Madison Square Garden Corporation which then began planning to replace the aging arena. In 1977, Gulf and Western Industries bought the company. Gulf and Western shed its non-media and entertainment assets, became Paramount Communications (owner of Paramount Pictures) in 1989. In 1994, Viacom purchased majority ownership of Paramount Communications, but quickly sold MSG to Cablevision. In February 2010, Cablevision spun off the MSG properties, including the sports franchises, into The Madison Square Garden Company. On September 30, 2015, the MSG Networks division, which operates the company's media assets (including MSG Network) was spun off into a separate company, leaving MSG with its live entertainment and sports assets. On August 17, 2016, MSG acquired a 12% stake in digital media, broadcasting, and events company Townsquare Media from GE Capital. On July 31, 2017, MSG acquired a controlling stake in professional video gaming team Counter Logic Gaming.
