Viacom's Interim CEO Tom Dooley Will No Longer Serve as a Band-Aid On The Wounds He Helped to Inflict
Another scenario is installing fresh new leadership from outside. Maybe Tom Freston could be convinced even though he said earlier that he has no interest. Maybe Jeffrey Katzenberg formerly of Dreamworks Animation? Maybe Lauren Zalaznick formerly of NBC-Universal or maybe even CNN boss Jeff Zucker. The choices are out there but do any of them even want the job? Ms. Redstone is believed to also be looking inside the Viacom apparatus for a possible new CEO. Duties could be split between a new CEO and maybe a President/COO. Some possible suitors from inside could include current President of Kids & Family Cyma Zarghami, Viacom Music/Entertainment Chief Doug Herzog, BET Networks CEO Debra Lee, or Robert Bakish who is currently President/CEO of Viacom's international operations. The waiting game begins. Then again this CEO search could all be a distraction while Ms Redstone pulls out all stops to convince CBS CEO Les Moonves to takeover.
