One-on-one with CBS CEO Les Moonves

Les Moonves is the media industry's biggest booster of traditional broadcast television - yet he's placing lots of bets on a digital future. Brian Stelter sat down with the CBS Corporation CEO in his boardroom for a wide-ranging conversation.

The audience is in charge, and "my job is to reach them wherever I can," Moonves said. Here's more:

The world is really very, very different. Look, we run a broadcast network. 75+ percent of our audience still watches the shows in their time period. In other words, they tune in 8:00 on Tuesday night to watch 'NCIS.' And 8:00 on Thursday to watch 'The Big Bang Theory.'

And that number will come down. It will come down. And for that 25 percent, you know, the great news is - you know, that number is going to continue to go up - we want to be available to reach people everywhere."
