ViacomCBS in Hunt for Successor to CBS News Chief Susan Zirinsky
ViacomCBS has been searching for a successor to CBS News President Susan Zirinsky, according to people familiar with the matter, as media companies place new emphasis on their news divisions to attract the big, live audiences that advertisers and distributors continue to crave while more consumers migrate to streaming video.

George Cheeks, CEO of ViacomCBS’ CBS assets, has been holding talks with potential candidates for weeks, according to these people. There is no set timeline for Zirinsky to step down.
