Score 63 - On the Brink: Viacom & CBS name CMO ahead of merger
Julia Phelps, 14-year Viacom vet, has been promoted to the position of EVP and chief communications and corporate marketing officer of CBS. When she was named communications and culture SVP in 2017, Phelps's duties included corporate communications and marketing, corporate responsibility and special events. She oversaw Viacom's internal creative agency, Catalyst, and led the global launches of Spark, a next-generation town hall for employees, and global platform Generation Change. Now, she will lead ViacomCBS's marketing efforts as it strives to set itself apart in the media industry.
The merger may be a result of the rising popularity of subscription-based TV like Netflix and Hulu, which are quickly replacing cable. CBS's audience is a little older, compared to Viacom's millennial target demographic, so it also seems like an effort to merge these audiences.
Viacom and CBS will likely have fully merged in a $30 billion deal by the end of the year. Communications head at CBS, Dana McClintock, will continue in his role for CBS-branded businesses.

The companies, according to Kantar, also use outdoor, print and radio. They may try to modernize for younger audiences after the merger, considering Viacom's focus on MTV networks, so sellers with digital display space should reach out. Spend often spikes during Q2 and Q3.

Agency & martech readers - there's a chance that ViacomCBS will be open to agency reviews after the merger closes, so reach out soon to be top-of-mind. Competition will include Viacom's digital and media AORs, OMD West. We are unsure how long these relationships have lasted, so they may well have reached tenure (3-4 years).
