Quotable

“I’ve known Joe Ianniello for 20 years. I have tremendous respect for what he’s done at CBS. He’s clearly a world class executive. He and I have spoken a lot in the days leading up to yesterday… And there is a tremendous interest, joint interest, in unlocking the value of these combined companies. Yes, he will take the leadership position, running the CBS branded assets upon closing. By the way, we need someone to run those assets. That’s a big complicated business. He is ideally suited to do it because he has, you know, 20 years of knowledge in that space and a real passion for it,”

— ViacomCBS CEO Bob Bakish on CNBC’s “Squawk Box”
