Consistency Doesn't Mean Complacency

The CBS network is off to another solid fall season, and President and CEO Leslie Moonves is always happy to tout that fact while stumping for the overall well-being of broadcast television, especially as retransmission cash wars flare up all over the industry. Speaking at the 2010 Broadcasting & Cable/Multichannel News OnScreen Media Summit on Oct. 28 in New York City, Moonves sat for an interview with B&C Executive Editor Melissa Grego.
