On CBS' (CBS) Q4 earnings conference call, CEO Les Moonves said, "We had our best fourth quarter ever in all profit measures, including OIBDA, operating income and EPS. Our sources of high-margin growth are hitting on all cylinders, and as a result we are driving earnings like never before. 2013 is going to be an even better year with significant growth in retrans, reverse compensation, digital streaming, and domestic and international syndication." Moonves said the company was looking at significantly higher retrans revenue for 2013, and it was ahead of its target of reaching $1B in revenue from retrans by 2017, possibly sooner. He noted that the syndication pipeline remains very robust, and expects 2013 to be a "tremendous year."

CBS last week stripped an Indianapolis station of its affiliation due to a fee disagreement as it seeks a bigger share of pay-television revenue, reports the Wall Street Journal.
