Viacom (2005–2019): Former American global mass media company
The second incarnation of Viacom Inc. was an American multinational mass media conglomerate with interests primarily in film and television, which was formed as a spin-off of the first Viacom on December 31, 2005. It was one of two companies which succeeded the first Viacom, alongside CBS Corporation; both were owned by National Amusements, a theater company controlled by businessman Sumner Redstone. The spin-off was structured so that CBS Corporation would be the legal successor to the first Viacom, with the second Viacom being an entirely separated company.
