Turner may stay at AOL after giving up post

Ted Turner said he will consider remaining on AOL Time Warner Inc.'s board after he leaves as vice chairman in May.

The board is scheduled to meet Thursday, and Turner said he will talk to other board members before making any final decision.

Turner, who founded CNN and Turner Broadcasting, announced in January that he would officially leave the company in May. Turner, AOL Time Warner's largest individual shareholder, has repeatedly expressed dissatisfaction with the 2001 merger of America Online and Time Warner, and frustration over his own diminished role at the company.
