Richard Parsons has stepped down as interim chairman of CBS Corp after six weeks due to health issues.
The former Time Warner chief is fighting unanticipated complications from multiple myeloma and was advised by his doctor to reduce his corporate commitments.
Strauss Zelnick, who also joined CBS’ board in September is taking over the interim chairman spot. He’s CEO of Take-Two Interactive Software and a former top executive at BMG Entertainment, Columbia Pictures and 20thCentury Fox.
Parsons joined CBS following the resignation of CEO Les Moonves, who resigned amid charges of sexual harassment.
