Early Life

Moonves was born on October 6, 1949, in Brooklyn, New York. Moonves was a year old when his family moved to the Long Island town of Valley Stream. As a boy, trips to the city with his mother to see Broadway shows sparked a love of entertainment. Moonves' father, Herman, owned gas stations and his mother, Josephine, was a stay-at-home mother who later went back to school to become a nurse. Moonves' grandfather's sister was married to David Ben-Gurion, making Moonves the great-nephew of Israel's first prime minister.

Moonves attended public school before going to Bucknell University. He contemplated a medical career, but by the time he graduated in 1971, he was interested in acting.
