Les Moonves’ zipper problem carried at multi-million dollar price tag.
CBS’ proxy filings show that because of his separation agreement due to sexual misconduct allegations, Moonves forfeited more than $34 million of the roughly $42.5 million in stock awarded to him in 2018.
He was allowed to keep his 2018 salary and other benefits, which totaled $4.6 million according to the filing, as well as $8 million from an outstanding 2017 bonus.
So he’ll scrape by.
