CBS Dismisses Merger Talks

Les Moonves, Chief Executive Officer, President and Director of CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) said on CNBC in February 2015 that CBS was "very happy being alone," and the Chief Executive Officer doubled down on that talk at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom conference. Moonves says his Chief Operating Officer tells him that CBS will be a $100 stock in four years, so buyers or merger partners like Time Warner Inc. (NYSE:TWX) or Viacom, Inc. (NasdaqGS:VIAB) would have to pay "a very high price." CBS faces new negotiations with DIRECTV (NasdaqGS:DTV) and Cablevision Systems Corporation (NYSE:CVC) at the end of 2015.

Viacom, Inc. Plans to Slash Jobs

Viacom Inc. is planning companywide job cuts. The Viacom, Inc. is still deliberating the number of jobs to be cut from its workforce of about 9,900.

Viacom Restructures Network Groups

Viacom Inc. is consolidating three of its TV network groups into two as part of a company restructuring that resulted in the departures of some of its executives. MTV Networks Music & Logo Group, Entertainment Group and Kids & Family Group were restructured into two groups. MTV Networks Music & Logo Group was reportedly split into two, with MTV, MTV2, LOGO and VH1 shifting to the Entertainment Group, now called Viacom Music and Entertainment Group, under the leadership of President Doug Herzog. Comedy Central and Spike TV are also under the newly renamed group. The split was related to Van Toffler's resignation as president of MTV Networks Music & Logo Group in April. Meanwhile, CMT and CMT Pure Country shifted to the Kids & Family Group from MTV Networks Music & Logo Group. TV network groups BET Networks and Viacom International Media Networks will remain intact.
