CBS has its origins in the United Independent Broadcasters bought by William S. Paley in 1928. The network was renamed the Columbia Broadcasting System and provided radio coverage of news and entertainment of the day. Under Paley’s stewardship, CBS became one of the largest radio networks in the country.
Upon the advent of television, CBS grew into one of the “big three” broadcast networks in the country. The network was acquired by The Westinghouse Electric Corporation in 1995, eventually becoming the CBS corporation. Five years later, Viacom bought CBS. The network is sometimes called the “Eye Network,” because of its distinctive logo. In a reference to the high quality of its programming, CBS has also been called the “Tiffany Network.” Learn more about the history and development of the network, as well as current and past tv and radio shows in this Bright Hub guide.
