CBS has promoted Bryon Rubin to chief operating officer of its Entertainment Group.
Rubin will continue to serve as CFO of the group, and now also oversee all financial and business operations across divisions, including the CBS Television Network (CBS Entertainment, CBS News and CBS Sports), CBS Studios, CBS Television Stations and CBS Television Distribution.
He will report to, and work with, CBS group President and CEO George Cheeks on growth strategies for the businesses.
Rubin “is uniquely qualified to more broadly lead our financial and business operations and to take on an important strategic role as well,” Cheeks stated in announcing the promotion. “His deep knowledge of CBS and so many critical parts of our business -- broadcast, production, digital, syndication, stations -- will be an enormous asset to our Group,” said Cheeks.
Since joining CBS in 1999, Rubin has served as CFO of the CBS Television Network, executive vice president of corporate development for CBS Corporation, and CFO of CBS Interactive.
