CBS Chief Moonves Scouts for Options Amid Viacom Rerun

VIAB CBS

Shari Redstone, vice chairman of CBS, is pushing for Moonves, CEO of the broadcaster, to once again consider a merger with Viacom to combine the two companies her family controls. CBS has discussed deals with companies including Verizon Communications Inc. and Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., the people said, asking not to be identified discussing private information.

To Live & Die on M&A: Viacom Slumps as No Bankers Hired for CBS Reunification

VIAB CBS
