    Shari Redstone Retakes Control of CBS, But Options May Be Few

    After watching her father buy and sell more than a half-dozen companies over several decades, Shari Redstone has seized the opportunity to forge her own reputation as a media baron. Redstone neutralized the threat to her family’s control over CBS Corp. this past weekend by settling a legal fight with the broadcaster’s board. At the same time, the ouster of longtime Chief Executive Officer Les Moonves -- who resigned over accusations of sexual harassment by a dozen women, including allegations of assault -- eliminated a key foe and gives Redstone a chance to pick a new leader.
