Les Moonves & Julie Chen

February 4, 2012 by staff 

Les Moonves & Julie Chen, Leslie Moonves (born October 6, 1949) is President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS Corporation.

Moonves served as co-president and co-chief operating officer of Viacom, Inc., the predecessor to CBS Corporation, from 2004 until the company split on December 31, 2005. Prior to that he had been in a series of executive positions for CBS since July 1995.

Moonves is the great-nephew of David Ben-Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel.

Moonves resides in the hills above Brentwood, California.

With his first wife of 26 years, Nancy Wiesenfeld Moonves (m. 17-Dec-1978, div. 2004), he has three children.

On April 2003, Nancy Moonves filed for divorce in L.A. Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences, according to her lawyer Dennis Wasser. Nancy and Les Moonves were already living apart.

In 2004, although his divorce from Nancy was not yet finalized, Les Moonves began dating CBS’ The Early Show reporter Julie Chen. On December 10, 2004, Moonves got a court to grant an early divorce. Tired of waiting, Moonves’ motion cited a “desire to return to the status of being single”. Moonves foresaw a lengthy trial to settle the property and other issues. He argued that “terminating the marital status will aid in promoting settlement of this matter,” and the judge gave his request the stamp of approval-leaving the divorce’s alimony, child support and property division details to be determined later-so he could remarry. Just thirteen days later in Mexico, he married television and news personality Julie Chen. On April 21, 2009, on The Early Show, Chen announced her pregnancy, and on September 24, 2009, Chen gave birth to a boy.
