Businessman. Controversial former head of CBS for nine years and co-founder of Loews with his brother Bob. Under his tenure with CBS, the Tiffany Newtwork lost NFL football from their schedule and their weeknight news show plummeted to third place in the ratings. He also instituted massive cuts which resulted in layoffs and massive budget cuts from the news department. He took over Loews in 1961 and eventually acquired the Lorillard tobacco company and the Bullova Watch Company. Today Loews is a multi billion dollar company under his shrewd acquisitions. (bio by: Allcalmap)
