Nippon Television Network Corporation (日本テレビ放送網,   Nihon Terebi Hōsōmō) was established in 1952 and began to broadcast in 1953, making it the first commercial television broadcaster in Japan. In 1969, the founder of Nippon, Matsutarō Shōriki died at age 84. With its founder gone, Nippon Television Network Corporation went on to broadcast a wide variety of shows, even forming its own news network. In 2003, its internal network name was changed to just Nippon Television (日本テレビ,   Nihon Terebi) and in 2014 it was changed for the last time, to Nippon TV (日本テレビ,   Nihon Terebi).
