CBS Announces New Agreement With CBS News President David Rhodes CBS President and CEO Leslie Moonves announced today a new contract agreement with CBS News President David Rhodes that extends his employment through February 2019. Rhodes has been President of CBS News since 2011.
"CBS News is experiencing division-wide growth," said Moonves. "David's exceptional news judgment and competitive acumen has had a great impact so far, and we look forward to continued growth on all our news broadcasts as we move forward."
Rhodes is responsible for CBS News broadcasts and its global newsgathering. His emphasis on hard news and original reporting is evident across all platforms, including television, CBS News Radio and CBSNews.com. He also spearheaded the launch of CBSN, a joint effort between CBS News and CBS Interactive to create the first digital streaming news network.
Rhodes was a catalyst behind the creation and launch of the CBS This Morning program, including the development of a new studio and newsroom at the legendary CBS Broadcast Center in New York. He also helped to expand Face The Nation with Bob Schieffer to a full hour as the broadcast became the #1 Sunday public affairs show.
Moonves concluded, "I'm delighted that CBS News will remain under the leadership of one of the most accomplished young executives in the television news industry for many years to come."
