CBS got its name/acronym from the network’s former name, the Columbia Broadcasting System – it is an American commercial broadcast TV and radio network owned by the CBS Entertainment Group, which is owned by ViacomCBS. Its main offices are located in the CBS Building in New York City, with several production facilities in New York and Los Angeles. The network has been using an eye symbol since 1951, which is why it is often called the Eye Network – it is also called Tiffany Network.
CBS dates back to 1928 when Paley purchased 16 radio stations which were united into the United Independent Broadcasters Inc. before being renamed to the Columbia Broadcasting System. Paley made the network into one of the largest in the US, while it eventually became one of the Big Three American broadcast TV networks – the network was bought by the Westinghouse Electric Corporation in 1995, when it was renamed to CBS Broadcasting, Inc. two years later, while it soon became only CBS. Viacom bought the company in 2000.
