CBS News president David Rhodes and Univision president Cesar Conde share the #9 spot on this year’s Fortune‘s “40 Under 40″ list. Rhodes and Conde also share the same age: 38. About Rhodes, Fortune writes:
Rhodes has eschewed the fluff, flash, and other ratings bait that typically pass for news these days to focus on, um, well, news. He’s lengthened the network’s flagship political show, “Face the Nation,” put Scott Pelley in the evening anchor spot, and completely overhauled the moribund “Early Show,” which debuted as CBS This Morning with Charlie Rose and Gayle King in January.
The list is filled mostly with tech stars and finance types. But, in case you were wondering, yes, the Olson twins are on it too.
