ViacomCBS Consolidates Network Leadership in Pre-Merger Shakeup

Chris McCarthy and David Nevins’ roles expand, while Kent Alterman and Sarah Levy will exit


With the CBS-Viacom merger expected to close in early December, the combined company has set its content and executive teams, consolidating network leadership among a few execs including Chris McCarthy and David Nevins.

McCarthy—currently president of MTV, VH1, CMT and Logo—has been named president of entertainment and youth brands at ViacomCBS’ domestic media networks, and will now additionally oversee Viacom’s Comedy Central, TV Land and Paramount Network, as well as CBS’ Smithsonian Channel.

Nevins—who is chief creative officer for CBS and Showtime Networks’ chairman and CEO—will add oversight of BET, in addition to all the CBS properties he heads up.
