AT&T announced a massive merger with Discovery Monday morning. 

AT&T's content unit, WarnerMedia, which includes CNN, HBO, TNT and TBS, is being combined with Discovery in a $43 billion deal to make a new entity. The merger has to be approved by regulators, but is expected to close about this time next year.
