CBS News President David Rhodes has signed a contract extension to stay with the network through February 2019, CBS President and CEO Les Moonves announced on Monday.
Rhodes, who has been in his current role at CBS since 2011, previously headed U.S. television operations at Bloomberg. The news veteran began his career as a production assistant at Fox News when the network launched in 1996, ultimately rising to vice president of news.
“I’m delighted that CBS News will remain under the leadership of one of the most accomplished young executives in the television news industry for many years to come,” Moonves said in a statement.
At CBS, Rhodes is responsible for all news broadcasts and newsgathering, and he oversaw the launch of the network’s morning show, “CBS This Morning.”
