Viacom CEO eyes bettering culture, affiliate relations, Reuters reports

Viacom's (VIAB) acting president and CEO Bob Bakish is seeking to improve relations with affiliates as well as the company's internal culture, Reuters reports, citing an interview with Bakish. Bakish is viewed by many investors as a caretaker until the media group combines with CBS (CBS), a transaction which controlling shareholders Sumner Redstone and his daughter Shari are pushing, the report says. "The company has been through a lot and part of my job is to revitalize the culture," Bakish said. "It's about starting to create a positive buzz and having people believe we can do great things."

CBS extraordinarily well positioned, says Brean Capital
Brean Capital analyst Alan Gould said CBS (CBS) is extraordinarily well positioned with two core networks, predictable retrans/reverse comp driving growth and only modest programming expense increases as its key sports contracts are locked in. Gould believes CBS would only combine with Viacom (VIA) if it was financially favorable to CBS shareholders and management. Gould reiterated his Buy rating and $65 price target on CBS shares.
