CBS Corporation Extends Chairman/President/CEO Les Moonves
CBS Corporation
has announced a new agreement with Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Les Moonves that covers a two-year extension to his current term with CBS Corporation, through June 30, 2021. Under the terms of the agreement, Moonves’ salary remains at its current level. As before, he will continue to be eligible for an annual bonus and will receive long-term, performance-based incentives that further tie the value of the agreement to the success of the Company and its stock. The agreement provides for Moonves to become a senior advisor to the Company for an additional five years, and will include an option to establish a production company under CBS’ auspices.
Moonves came to CBS in 1995 as President of Entertainment. He was promoted to President and CEO of CBS Television in 1998, became its Chairman in 2003, and was later named Co-President and Co-Chief Operating Officer of Viacom and Chairman of CBS in 2004. In 2006, Moonves was named President and CEO of the newly formed CBS Corporation when it became a stand-alone, publicly traded company. In 2016, he was named Chairman as well.

Chris Cornell Dead at 52
Singer Chris Cornell, frontman of influential rockers Soundgarden and the supergroups Audioslave and Temple of the Dog, passed away last week at the age of 52. Soundgarden has been on tour and just played Detroit on Wednesday night. Police received a 911 call around midnight from a family friend and found Cornell "unresponsive laying on the bathroom floor" of his hotel room, according to Rolling Stone. Later Wednesday, the medical examiner formally announced that Cornell died of a suicide by hanging.

"His wife, Vicky, and family were shocked to learn of his sudden and unexpected passing, and they will be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause," Cornell's publicist said in a statement. Cornell was known for his impressive vocal prowess and rose to fame as the frontman of Seattle rock band Soundgarden. The band formed in the mid-80s and released its debut EP Screaming Life in 1987. In 1990, Cornell's former roommate Andrew Wood of the band Mother Love Bone passed away from a heroin overdose. Cornell teamed up with the future members of Pearl Jam, including then-unknown Eddie Vedder, to form Temple of the Dog and honor Wood's memory.

Soundgarden broke through with 1991's Badmotorfinger and hit the big time with 1994's Superunknown, released at the peak of rock's grunge era. Superunknown featured the massive hits "Black Hole Sun," "Spoonman," "Fell on Black Days" and others. After 1996's Down on the Upside, the band broke up and Cornell released the solo record Euphoria Morning in 1999.

A few years later, Cornell teamed with 3/4 of Rage Against the Machine for the supergroup Audioslave. The band released three albums and had a number of hit singles, including "Like a Stone," "Cochise" and "Be Yourself." Cornell released a handful of solo records before Soundgarden reformed in 2010 and released the record King Animal. Cornell continued to juggle all his various bands, with Soundgarden touring occasionally, Audioslave reuniting for a one-off gig in January and Temple of the Dog mounting its first-ever tour in 2016. He also toured as a solo artist on and off as well.

Soundgarden had been slated as one of the headliners for last weekend's Rock on the Range festival in Ohio. The organizers have released a statement saying, "As we mourn Chris Cornell’s sudden passing, additional details surrounding Rock on the Range performances will be shared when they become available. We appreciate the patience and understanding of the music community during this difficult time and we will have more to share in the near future."
