With CBS Corp. Chairman, President and CEO Leslie Moonves under pressure following the publication of a bombshell report by The New Yorker alleging sexual misconduct, a new report today by Variety examines six possible replacements for Moonves.
The veteran executive remains in place for now, after the CBS Board of Directors met today to discuss his fate. As we reported previously, the board set the wheels in motion for an investigation into the allegations against Moonves, but took no further action.
It has been reported that Moonves is considering stepping aside from his duties at CBS while his situation is investigated.
The Variety report weighs the prospects that Moonves could be replaced by one of six industry veterans, examining the pros and cons of each one. On Variety’s list are Richard Parsons, Dana Walden, Nancy Tellem, Jeff Bewkes, Nina Tassler and Bob Bakish.
