Viacom And CBS Are Seeking To Merge, According To Insiders *Updated 1/17*

Viacom and CBS vice-chairwoman Shari Redstone is pursuing a merger of the two media companies that split more than a decade ago, according to multiple insiders who spoke to TheWrap.


With the Hollywood landscape quickly shifting, Redstone, president of the privately-held National Amusements that controls both media companies, has concluded that a bigger footprint is necessary for the companies to thrive. CBS’ core business is broadcast television along with multiple digital properties, while Viacom holds cable channels like Nickelodeon and Comedy Central along with the Paramount movie studio.

A time frame for any potential merger is unclear, but three individuals with knowledge of the companies said that Redstone is actively moving in that direction, which represented another shift in her back-and-forth mindset on the matter.

Viacom and National Amusements declined to comment, and CBS had no immediate response to a request for comment.

Viacom shares reacted quickly to the news. Shares of the company, which controls MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and the Paramount movie studio, rose nearly 10% Friday, or $2.95 a share, to $33.76 a share from $30.90. Volume was strong – 12.45 million shares – compared to average volume of 5.07 million.

Shares of CBS rose more modestly, up 1.85%, or $1.07 a share, to $58.83 a share from $57.78. Volume was 6.19 million compared with average volume of 4.01 million.

CBS chairman Les Moonves, who has long resisted talk of recombining the companies, is now open to the possibility, the insiders said. He would be the most likely person to run the merged companies, though Redstone is considering other candidates, according to two insiders.

An individual close to Moonves acknowledged the process to TheWrap: “He’s having active discussions with Shari and the board on a wide variety of issues all the time, including this one. And those discussions continue with regard to looking to merge the two companies.”

One insider told TheWrap that Redstone was looking at other candidates because Moonves was demanding an ownership stake and she thought his demands were too rich. The individual close to Moonves disputed this, saying: “At no time has he asked for an ownership position.”

The move to merge the companies represents another reversal for Redstone, who directly appealed to CBS and Viacom to merge in September 2016, then retreated from this in the following months, presumably because of Moonves’ opposition.

In a letter in September 2016 to both boards from her parent company National Amusements, she touted the potential of “substantial synergies” that a merger would bring. She called on the boards to “respond even more aggressively and effectively” to combat the challenges they both faced.

Redstone later reconsidered after ousting Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman and replacing him with Bob Bakish — whom she installed after successfully wresting control of Viacom in a bruising boardroom and legal battle over succession plans involving her father, Sumner Resdstone.

“We talked about it, and what became apparent to me very quickly was that our assets were severely undervalued, which I had understood, but what I didn’t understand at the time was the significant upside that existed in our businesses once we had a good management team in place and the culture came back,” Redstone said at last May’s re/code conference.

The new merger talk comes amid a new period of consolidation in the entertainment and media industry. In December, Disney announced plans for a $52.4 billion acquisition of the bulk of 21st Century Fox’s movie and TV assets, while telecom giant AT&T is attempting to complete the $85.4 billion acquisition of Time Warner announced more than a year ago.

Meanwhile, the rise of streaming giant Netflix as well as the ambitious moves by tech giants like Amazon and Apple into the entertainment content space have set off a period of strategic change in the sector.

The market cap of Viacom is $12.7 billion, while the market cap of CBS is $23.2 billion.

In February 2016, the then 92-year-old Redstone stepped down as chairman of both Viacom and CBS amid questions about his age and mental competency. Moonves assumed the chairman title at CBS, while Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman was ousted and ultimately replaced by Robert Bakish.

Viacom and CBS had merged into a single company in 1999, which Sumner Redstone split in 2005 in an attempt to maximize shareholder value.

The Redstones control both the CBS and Viacom through their supervoting shares held by National Amusements.

As of December 2016, National Amusements, directly and through subsidiaries, holds approximately 79.8 percent of the Class A (voting) common stock of Viacom Inc., constituting 10 percent of the overall equity of the Company, and holds approximately 79.5 percent of the Class A (voting) common stock and 2.4 percent of the Class B (non‐voting) common stock of CBS Corporation, constituting 9.1 percent of the overall equity of the Company.

Drake Bell Hopes For a 'Drake & Josh' Reboot: 'Let's Do It'

Drake Bell, who is currently in the midst of his Drake Bell Stripped Tour, stopped by the Billboard office to perform a few tracks and chat about his music. But perhaps the most exciting part of his visit for those tuned into his Facebook Live stream was when the 31-year-old discussed the possibility of a Drake & Josh reboot.


Speaking with Billboard’s Kevan Kenney, Bell discussed the idea of reviving his mid-2000s Nickelodeon show, comparing a potential reunion to the Beatles. “Look, when the Beatles wanted to get back together, John was always like, ‘Hey, let me know when the rehearsal is!’ and Paul was always like, ‘No, we can’t do that,’” Bell says. “So I’ve always said I’m the John Lennon of a Drake & Josh reunion. So if you tell JP, let’s do it.”

On the subject of Peck, Bell also commented on their up-and-down, yet extremely close relationship, explaining that they basically feel like siblings.

“We’re brothers,” Bell shares. “Honestly, we’ve known each other for 20 years almost, and we’ve had our ups and downs. It’s same with my own brothers. I mean we’ve had times where I wanna throw my brother through the wall and there’s other times where I wanna grab him and be like, ‘Dude, you’re my best friend! I love you to death.’ And I think for Josh…he was an only child, so I think I was really the closest thing that he would ever have to a brother and we were really close.”

Last year, Bell had taken to Twitter to express how upset he was over not being invited to Peck’s wedding, writing in a since-deleted tweet that their ties were “officially cut.” However, the pair mended their relationship after they ran into each other at the 2017 MTV VMAs.

“When I saw him at the VMAs…he threw his arm around me, and we hashed it out," Bell states. "And he’s like, ‘No hard feelings, man, I love you man, you’re my bro.’ So it’s all water under the bridge.”

You can watch the full clip of Drake Bell discussing his friendship with Josh Peck below!:

Nick Jr. Asia To Premiere 'Wallykazam!' On Monday 22nd January 2018

Nickelodeon invites preschoolers to discover the magic of words as Nick Jr. Asia debuts Nickelodeon's popular animated literacy series Wallykazam! on Monday 22nd January 2018! Wallykazam! follows the adventures of a troll named Wally and his pet dragon, Norville, who live in a forest with giants, goblins, ogres, sprites and other mythical creatures. Wally uses his magic stick to make words come to life on screen that start with a specific letter, sound or rhyme. Each episode features a new set of magic words that Wally uses to playfully transform the world around him. Wallykazam! will air at 10:00am on Nick Jr. Malaysia (MY), Nick Jr. Philippines (PH) and Nick Jr. Singapore (SG).


Wally and Norville in Nickelodeon's Wallykazam!

Wallykazam! is Nickelodeon's first preschool series that embeds a literacy curriculum into a full-length story, introducing skills such as letter and sound identification, rhyming, vocabulary development and comprehension strategies. Created by producer/writer Adam Peltzman (Emmy Award-winning The Backyardigans and Bubble Guppies), the series will air regularly every Saturday and Sunday at 8:00am.


Wallykazam!

In the series premiere, "Naptime for Borgelorp," Wally babysits Ogre Doug's hyper and unpredictable pet Borgelorp. Ogre Doug gives Wally two instructions: get Borgelorp to take a nap and, most importantly, make sure he doesn't eat any purple flowers. Wally uses magic words to help tire out the rambunctious creature and desperately tries to keep him away from purple flowers, but Bobgoblin has other plans. The words introduced in the episode start with the letter "s" and include somersault, soar, sandwich and symphony.



Online at nickjr.tv, parents and children can find out more about Wallykazam! and watch exclusive videos from the series.
