CBS was founded in the year 1929. The company has been operational for almost 90 years now. The founder of the company was Arthur Judson. The origins of the company go back to the year 1927 when United Independent Broadcasters Network was established. The same year, after getting investment from Columbia Phonograph Company, the name of the company was changed to Columbia Phonographic Broadcasting System and was aired on the same year as well. By the year 1932, the overall gross income of the company was already raking at an amount of $4.7 million - the success which is attributed to the management under the control of William S Paley. In the year 1934, the company launched its independent news network as well. Then in the year 1941, the company started its television station.
During the end of the 1960s, 1970s and the early 1980s, CBS was indeed very much popular with their television shows, and their shows received better ratings as well. This is all due to the various types of soaps and serials that were aired during that time, including Gunsmoke, The Beverly Hillbillies, Hee Haw, etcetera. During the starting of the early 1990s, the television channel of the company came in behind of ABC and NBC. The company, in order to improve the condition of the TV channel, signed up The Winter Olympics and also Major League Baseball. But, by the early 2000s, due to the success of most of its TV shows like CSI, The Mentalist, Criminal Minds, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, etcetera, the company returned to its previous first place. This also increased the company's rivalry with Fox Entertainment. As of the current date, CBS is planning to merge up with Viacom, in the television entertainment space. The headquarters of the company is based in 51 West 52nd Street. The name of the place is New York, while the name of the state is New York, USA. The pin code of the area is 10019.
