    “After taking the CBS network from last to first place in the ratings in his early tenure at the company, Moonves was promoted to president and CEO of CBS Television in 1998 and became its chairman in 2003. He was named co-president and co-COO of Viacom and chairman of CBS in 2004.
    In 2006, when Viacom split its businesses into two publicly traded companies, he became president and CEO of the new CBS Corp.

    The company Monday cited his focus on developing new revenue streams, such as retransmission-consent fees and licensing fees from digital streaming services including Netflix and Amazon.com. The company also highlighted that under his leadership, CBS Corp. has been the best-performing media stock for the past three years.”
