Leslie Moonves, CBS President and CEO, listens during a October 18, 2001 news conference, where it was announced that the 44th annual Grammy Awards will be held at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles on February 27, 2002. Moonves also announced that the Grammy Awards will broadcast on the CBS Television Network through the year 2006.

Strewn with laptops, power chords and giant telephoto lenses, one could imagine that executives seeking some privacy might look elsewhere. Not so for some.

The New York Post’s Tim Arango writes the blow by blow account of a meeting between YouTube’s Chad Hurley and CBS chief Les Moonves regarding a distribution deal overheard by some reporters. “How can we be of service to each other,” Moonves was overheard saying, according to the Post.

The rest of the media mention it in their stories about the Sun Valley first timer and darling Hurley.
