The broadcast network is said to have made a $5 billion bid for Starz, a cable channel owned by the film-making company Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., which is set to report earnings for its latest quarter after the close of trading on Thursday. CBS is also likely inching closer to a recombination with Viacom Inc., a company with which CBS shares its controlling investor, Shari Redstone, 65. It’s been led by acting CEO Joseph Ianniello since September, when its longtime leader and face of the company, Leslie Moonves, was ousted following numerous sexual-harassment allegations.
Nickelodeon Latin America announced today that it has signed an exclusive global representation agreement with teen star and YouTube sensation, Isabella de La Torre, "La Bala". Under this agreement, Nickelodeon will work with La Bala to propel her career internationally on multiple platforms, including consumer products, music, short-and-long form original productions, social networks, live events and editorial, among others.
Viacom Inc. today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.20 per share on both its Class A and Class B common stock.
CBS plans to renew discussions for Starz with Lions Gate in the coming weeks, according to people familiar with the matter. If a deal happens, the remainder of Lions Gate could pursue a deal with MGM for additional scale.

G.research will host its 11th Annual Entertainment & Broadcasting Conference on June 6 in New York City. This research meeting will feature presentations by senior management of leading broadcasting and entertainment companies, with an emphasis on industry dynamics, new technologies, and company fundamentals.
The counter offer was made by the film studio behind the Hunger Games movies after CBS made an informal $5 billion bid for the cable network, the sources said. CBS's informal offer was made by Joseph Ianniello, the interim chief executive officer of CBS, about six weeks ago and Lions Gate Entertainment sought a higher valuation, the sources said. The approach underscores the scope of CBS's ambitions to compete more aggressively in a world in which it is squeezed by deep-pocketed tech companies on one side and rapidly consolidating peers on the other.
Take a look at the world's top 10 entertainment companies, spanning the movie, television, cable television, gaming, and streaming video sectors.
Rumor has it that a major media company might want to buy the Starz property for a cool $5 billion -- and that Lions Gate turned the offer down in search of more money.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission plans to vote in June on launching a new review of a key spectrum band reserved for automakers that could boost Wi-Fi use, a person briefed on the matter said on Tuesday. In 1999, the FCC reserved 75 megahertz of spectrum in the 5.9 GHz band for automakers to develop technology to allow vehicles to communicate with each other. Called Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC), the technology could eliminate hundreds of thousands of annual car crashes, automakers and regulators say.
