History

In March 2005, the prior Viacom (now known as CBS Corporation) announced plans of looking into splitting the company into two publicly traded companies. The company was not only dealing with a stagnating stock price, but also the rivalry between Leslie Moonves and Tom Freston, longtime heads of CBS and MTV Networks respectively. Viacom (pronounced with a long i as in eye) began life as CBS Films, the television syndication division of CBS. In 1971, the division was renamed VIACOM (VIdeo & Audio COMmunications), and in 1973 it was spun off, amid new FCC rules forbidding television networks from owning syndication companies (the rules... Leslie Moonves (born October 6, 1949 in New York City) is President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS Corporation. ... Thomas E. Freston (born 22 November 1945) is an American television executive most recently serving as President and Chief Executive Officer of the newly-split Viacom, until his resignation on September 5, 2006. ... CBS Broadcasting, Inc. ... MTV Networks is a division of media conglomerate Viacom that oversees the operation of many TV network and Internet brands, including the first MTV channel. ...


After the departure of Mel Karmazin in 2004, Redstone, who served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, decided to split the offices of President and Chief Operating Officer between Moonves and Freston. Redstone was set to retire in the near future, and a split would be a creative solution to the matter of replacing him. Melvin Alan Mel Karmazin, a native New Yorker, (born August 24, 1943)[1] is an executive who has held several top jobs in the broadcasting industry and is currently CEO of Sirius Satellite Radio. ...

The split was approved by Viacom's board June 14, 2005, approved December 31, 2005, and effectively undid the Viacom/CBS merger of 1999. The original Viacom changed its name to CBS Corporation and is headed by Moonves. It now includes Viacom's "slow growth businesses", namely CBS, The CW (formerly The WB and UPN), CBS Radio, Simon & Schuster, CBS Outdoor, Showtime, CBS Records, CBS Paramount Television and most television production assets.

These, according to some analysts, were suffocating the growth of the MTV Networks cable businesses (the split was structured such that CBS Corporation is actually the company previously known as Viacom). At the time of the split, CBS Corporation was also given control of Paramount Parks. CBS sold Paramount Parks to amusement parks management company Cedar Fair, L.P. on June 30, 2006.

A new company, the present Viacom, was also spun-off and was headed by Freston. It is comprised of MTV Networks, BET Networks, Paramount's movie studio, and Paramount Pictures' home entertainment operations. These businesses are categorized as the high-growth businesses (MTV Networks and BET Networks in particular), and if they were split into a separate company, it could infuse new capital to allow for future acquisitions and expansion.


Sumner Redstone still controls 71 percent of the voting stock of both companies and is the chairman of both companies.
