Leslie Moonves is a man of many ventures; he’s a former actor, turned media executive, and also husband to television personality Julie Chen, who is 22 years his junior.

Currently the television prodigy is trying to resurrect the lifeless CBS network. Explaining why people should invest in his company, Moonves said:

“I think the reason you should buy our stock is that we have very successful businesses that continue to produce a lot of cash. We’ll pay our dividend. You are going to get money from buying our stock. The dividend is going to continue to go up too. And on top of all that, these are businesses that initially are going to be growing and will continue to grow because of new media.”

Media analyst Fred Moran once said of Moonves:

“Les Moonves is clearly one of the most successful leaders in the television business today.”
